I've mentioned time and again how underwhelming the crop of contenders for the 2008 Presidential election is. While I hold out hope that Al Gore reconsiders and decides to run (and there's a great story on that here http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21231563/ ), in the meantime, I have decided to back John Edwards. There's a link to his website off with the other things that don't suck links. Feel free to take a gander at his positions on the war (says he'll get troops out within 9 months of taking office , health care (everyone covered), and all his other positions which favor working class America. My endorsement means nothing to the success or failure of the Edwards campaign but I also wanted to endorse something (and now I have). I'd also like to endorse Dunkin' Donuts, General Mills cereals, BMW automobiles, and the Sonly Playstation 3 so corporate overlords if you're listening, give me free stuff and I'll endorse your crap.
Speaking of endorsements, feel free to click on the ad links. Go do it now...I'll wait.
