I just want to tell all the Democrats who are voting on Super Tuesday to look at www.johnedwards2004.com and check out John Edwards’ priorities and practical solutions for America.
I’ve noted before that conservative guru Bill Kristol says he does not know one Republican in Washington who thinks that Edwards won’t be more challenging than Kerry. Edwards is also polling nationally higher than Bush.
Finally, Joe Trippi has noted that the Deaniacs are halving into two camps: stick with Dean on the primary ballot and switching to Edwards. They seem to think that John Kerry is part of the problem, not the solution. You can check out Democrat Mickey Kaus’ column at Salon to see John Kerry’s various failings: http://www.kausfiles.com
In Thursday night’s debate, John Kerry opened up talking about a “positive message” and “real solutions” (the name of Edwards 60-page position paper, and on Edwards’ website and campaign bus) when mostly what he’s been doing so far is going negative on Bush. Kerry knows that Edwards’ message and attitude will appeal to independent voters in the general election more than the one he has offered so far (which was stolen from Dean).
Very regularly, weird information suggestive of Kerry’s hypocrisy slips out. By November, there are going to be a lot, and this will turn off the swing voters Democrats need to win the election.
You can still vote for Kerry against Bush, if that’s the way it ends up but I think John Edwards would make a better president. He will return the Democratic party to a sincere and enlightened populism. Please vote for him on Super Tuesday.
