    I think Kerry made the right pick. Where does he stand on gun control?

    Lost all respect for Edwards then...

    I thought Edwards was a decent Dem. Guess not, to be teaming up with this piece of excrement.

    John Edwards has been, since his first day on the job, a political climber who's used his office as a North Carolina Senator as a springboard to higher office. He's now accomplished exactly what he intended to do all along. He has spent his entire tenure as Senator, drawing his salary from the people of North Carolina, and doing very little related to the position he received the pay for.

    He's the worst kind of horse crap.

    Any pol who uses the words "guns' and "you don't need" in the same sentence is not our friend.

    I will tolerate instant background checks where I buy from an FFL. But any attempt to further regulate gun shows, or 'ban' guns that some XXXhole uses in a crime, is an absurd and unconstitutional violation of our God-given rights.

    They should put the VP debate on pay-per-view. Should be a real smackdown.

    I think that sKerry has made the very best choice he could to help him gain votes.
    I don't beleive he is about to gain any here, however.

    Edwards was about as good a choice as he could make, but I still think he will lose.

    The Democrats were dumb to pick Kerry over Edwards as their presidential candidate. The last time a liberal democrat from the North East won a presidential election was 40 years ago.

    Liberal Democrat Yankees don't run well in the south. Edwards will not help anywhere but maybe NC.

    I think Bush will sweep the south.

    If they had picked Edwards, they might have picked up a couple of southern states, but would have still done just as well in the North East.

    Edwards just wasn't liberal enough for the people running the Democratic Party.

    IS THIS TRUE?!???

    I found this info on an email from a friend...

    Sen. John Kerry keeps talking about U.S. corporations leaving this country and setting up shop in foreign countries, taking thousands of American jobs with them. He is right, because that has happened. However, he is trying to blame it on George W. Bush. As far as I know, Bush has not moved one factory out of this country because he is not the owner of a single factory. That cannot be said about Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz-Kerry. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Kerry's own 32 factories in Europe and 18 in Asia and the Pacific. In addition, their company, the Heinz Company leases four factories in Europe and four in Asia. Also, they own 27 factories in North America, some of which are in Mexico and the Caribbean. 80% of Heinz products are made overseas. I wonder how many hundreds of American workers lost there jobs when these plants relocated in foreign countries. I also wonder if the workers in Mexico and Asia are paid the same wages and benefits as the workers in the United States. Of course they're not. However, Kerry demands that other companies that relocate should pay the same benefits they did in the U.S. Why does he not demand this of the Heinz Company, since he is married to the owner? If Kerry is elected, will he and his wife close all those foreign factories and bring all those jobs back to America? Of course they won't. They're making millions off that cheap labor!

    It doesn't matter where he stands. The Veep is just a figurehead anyhow. He won't have any effect on policy.

    Well at least he picked a product liability and personal injury lawyer. Holding true to form he is on both sides of the issue again.

    I think the fact that he thinks the second amendment is about hunting says all that needs to be said.

    Edwards is a member of the plantiff's bar (AKA evil trial lawyers).

    Edwards campaign was supported and extended beyond a reasonable time to quit by fellow trial lawyers.

    His run for the presidency which began before his senatorial seat was warm is designed for one purpose and one purpose only. The next phase in public policy in this country is to begin the process of litigation reform. John Edwards purpose is to have a seat at the table when the terms of litigation reform is being negotiated. Civil litigation is a monsterously expensive enterprise. We are literally rearranging our economy to avoid liltigation. Meanwhile, the kinds of suits being filed are increasingly irrational and can not stand up to the scrutiny of common sense.

    Edwards job is to make sure corrective legislation does not harm the industry known as trial lawyers.

    This was a move to garner Southern votes as someone posted above. I hope these Southern voters remember that Kerry said the Democratic Party does not need the South to win.

    Cheney is going to tear this guy apart. Absolutely no experience. But as the media was so quick to point out this morning, he is pretty. :p

    Perhaps the biggest looser in Kerry’s selection is Hillary Clinton. By picking Edwards:
    (a) If Kerry is elected, Edwards (as the VP) has four or eight years in the national spotlight to prepare for his Presidential run.
    (b) If Bush is reelected, Edwards is pre-selected as the CENTRIST Democrat candidate: popular, charismatic, with a good sense of humor, and the ablity to raise funds. In essence, Senator Clinton antithesis in several of these key categories.
