Kerry-Edwards Ticket

Sen. John Kerry has chosen Michigan senator John Edwards as his running mate.

Neat. Somehow, I suspected that was coming. Edwards is a well-spoken, balanced sort of man. He may just level out the apparent lack luster used car salesman appearance of Kerry.

But, I’ll have to agree with my husband on this one. It’s entirely likely that this choice is going to backfire for the Kerry campaign. Edwards is a strong speaker, very charismatic with an infectious personality. Compared to this, Kerry comes across as flat and unfeeling. I have some concerns that this is going to damage his image more than it’s going to help it.
