Senator John Edwards

Well, he's not an unknown southern governor--and it has been thirty years since the a majority of the voters chose... let me be more precise: since a majority of the presidential electoral college voted for someone who was not (a) an incumbent, (b) a sitting vice president, or (c) a largely unknown southern governor or ex-governor. But he is the next best thing: he's a largely unknown southern senator. And he's thus the Democrats' best hope for getting the most votes in the election... ahem, getting a majority of the electoral college to vote for a Democrat come November of 2004. Meet Senator John Edwards, D-NC. John Edwards's New American Optimists...
