Looks like Liberals all over facebook are falling in love with a smooth talking man named Obama. I for one don't really care about the big spending sweepstakes to the south. But I am going to pontificate on why both Hillary and Obama are bad for the dems, and Edwards is the best choice.
The last 2 democrats to win the Presidency were not Senators.
They were not from the North.
They were Southern Governors.
There is no southern Governor running for the democrats.
The Democrats needs a Southerner to win. Al Gore came close, but he was the VP, not a Governor or Senator from the South. If our Southern ideological cousins make a choice, by this article it should be John Edwards.
Why the south do you ask? The South has a disproportionate of electoral college votes. And every past democrat president in the last half of the 20th century has needed the south to carry the election. Bill Clinton, Carter, and LBJ all used their humble southern roots to win elections.
The only man with these credentials is John Edwards, he has that Southern Charm, and Southern roots necessary for the job.
So Obama and Clinton, if history tells us anything will face an uphill battle, and their northern roots won't carry well in Charleston, Charlotte, and Memphis.
