Kerry Picks Edwards

In what can only be labeled as a terribly uninspired decision, John Kerry has pegged John Edwards as his running mate.

I assume the thought behind this is that Edwards can help him in the South. However, I do not believe this strategy would work. It has already been reported that Edwards would likely not be able to retain his seat in the upcoming elections and Edwards is generally out of touch with the majority of Southern voters, Republican or Democrat.

Edwards may attract a few dunces that cast their votes solely on personal appearance and may help with the Black vote, but all in all I think better choices could have been made.

This now leaves the door wide open for Bush to shake things up.
