I don't like Edwards and the pandering that he did last time around. Way too political for me.
Hillary Clinton without a skirt that's what he is.

Kucinich has the right stance on issues, he just doesn't have that spark most people need to take a serious look.

I like Edwards, he was pretty much shut into a corner during the last campaign. I believe he would have stayed in Ohio and fought for the rightful win there but Kerry backed out. I liked his message before the campaign.

I do love the Gore/Obama ticket, but still think Richards could prove to be a great asset. He does have wide appeal and could bring new people into the voting booths.

I really like Kucinich. But, I do not think he is electable. They would most likely destroy him like so many other 'weak' contenders.

He has strong arguments, but I really think you have to look at the big picture.

Kucinich's viewpoints are right on. I would love to see him as our President, but can't see the people being able to see through the smokescreen media will put around him.

I do hope he can inject some of his common sense into the Dem party though!

dori, he has the talk, but he hasn't the walk.. persona is what it takes to make the grade. Kucinish needs some spit and polish to run against the likes of Edwards, H.Clinton, Bill Richardson, and Gore (if he runs)..

I agree King Fisher. I just find it sad that the American people are so shallow they look for charisma rather than substance. Some people have both, some are only blessed with one--or maybe neither.

We all know people in each of those categories.

I am afraid what a person looks like is generally going to be more important than what they believe in and fight for.

Don't like him. He struck me as someone mouthnng off things that he thought people would like to hear. That is not leadership in my mind.

On a side note, Catherine, it is interesting to see all of these North Carolinian figures popping up.

Edwards wraps up early campaign blitz
By JIM DAVENPORT, Associated Press Writer
Sat Dec 30

WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. - Presidential hopeful John Edwards, returning to the scene of his only primary victory in his 2004 bid, said Saturday that fellow Democrats should focus on running Congress rather than trying to impeach President Bush.

He also disagreed with an audience member who suggested, on the day Saddam Hussein was hanged in Iraq, that Bush should face the same fate.

But Edwards said he "unequivocally and without any question" rejected an escalation of the war. "There is no military solution to what is happening in Iraq," he said to cheers from a crowd of 1,800 at Brookland Baptist Church, one of the state's largest black churches.

Luevera Caeser, one of about a dozen questioners at the town hall-style event, asked whether Edwards thought Bush should face impeachment because he "lied to the nation."

Edwards said the Republican-led impeachment of former President Clinton was driven by politics and damaged the nation. "I don't think the way to correct that mistake is by another mistake," Edwards said. "We don't have to get in the mud with pigs."

no... I know that this is a shallow reason but...

Kucinich just doesn't appear presidential... sorry...

Edwards attended the Bilderbergs meeting in June of '04... so no on him too...

Obama smoked pot and snorted coke when he was in high school but admitted his mistake early in his career as a politician... I can forgive him those early transgressions...

Well I see you have been taught well how to distort and use "play on words" as a distractor and make someone seem "bad". You have not only been brainwashed you participate in it of others!

You're so right, sadie...but you'd think he'd at least learn how to spell "crusader" if he's going to disparage a man like Barak Obama. :P :violent3:
