I think the Edwards endorsement is very important. First it shows that once again the Obama political organization is world class. They just stomped all over Hillary’s W. VA moment and got the lead on the evening news.
Second, Edwards revived his “two America’s” theme and tied it in to Obama’s ability to end the regime where the American Oligarchs (Big Oil, Pharma, Media,Military Industrial, Finance) call the tune in Washington.
Finally, he represents the New South, unlike the portrayal of tobacco chewing crackers, who would never vote for a Black Man–or even a man from the same party as the Blackman. The whole Republican strategy is to use a tactic that TOTALLY FAILED, EVEN IN MISSISSIPPI, i.e. race-baiting to beat Obama. There are still bigots in America, but they are a small but vocal minority.
America is a very different place than John and Cindy McCain live in. America does not own private jets and $100 million beer distributorships. The Republican loss in Mississippi fortells a Democratic landslide–a throw the bums out election. If McCain wants to have an open argument about whether we should continue the direction of the country that George Bush, John McCain and the Republican Party have taken us, or have a real change–this is a debate we need to have.
