    We were wooping and cheering here at my house when he took her on on the Iran issue.

    We went into this debate, split between three of us for Obama (I'm for him but disappointed) and Clinton (one elderly family member who can't fathom voting a "negro" for president).

    We're all sending Edwards TURKEE TONIGHT.  Getting out the card and heading for ActBlue as we speak.

    Obama, if you want more TURKEE from me, you're going to have to start rustling some feathers.

      ONe post - does not make one a supporter.

      Give up, as far as I am concerned - if you were really for Edwards - you would still be for Edwards.

      Sorry - that's  it for me - I don't turn and run and I don't jump on a money train, or join in the band wagon hype. As far as I have seen it, Obama has copied Edwards lead on too much to be real. And, I would never ever chose someone who constantly talks bi-partisanship, to me that is centrist.  Also I would never ever support Obama in the primary just on the close ties to Harold Ford Jr he had and helped him campiagn across TN, then went on his book tour and would not help Lamont over Lieberman.  That was the end of any possible interest I may have had in Obama.

      Ford and ties to the DLC and Clinton puts Obama to close for any confort. I want change, I don't want the same.

      The candidate that is about change is JOHN EDWARDS.

      And, College for all - is extremely important to me along with Universal Healthcare with mental illness included equally.

      John Edwards is the candidate of HOPE, I will vote for JRE 2008! Join me for real change, not money or media hype, but real change for America.

        Dumbo (hearts) Edwards tattoo, but it's in a very sensitive place and it would require me assuming a yoga position.  Gotta get that removed, now, I guess.

        Gee, you're a tough cookie to convince.

        This is typical of the lukewarm candidate support I have offered.  From last January on MYDD:

        Re: John Edwards: Adopting The RFK Strategy? (none / 0)

        Until Clark gets into the race, Edwards might be the best we can hope for from the top-tier primary candidates.  Meaning, he's not an unrepentant hawk like Hillary and Biden, and he's not as much of an empty suit as Obama...

        [Long speech about Eugene McCarthy and RKF ensued]
