Jeralyn Merritt’s went on TV to talk on who should run in 2008: “We also talked about Hillary and Obama. Both La Shawn and I thought Obama needs more experience and didn’t know if Hillary would run. I said I’d like to see a woman in the White House, La Shawn thought she’s too polarizing to win. Neither of us were big on Tom Vilsack. As for who we would like to see run, I said Russ Feingold and John Edwards.”
Hello! Hello! John Edwards has no experience in office except ONE SENATE TERM, a good part of which he spent not showing up and not voting. Besides his ONE SENATE TERM, Barack Obama has experience as a state senator, a constitutional law professor and community organizer. Barack Obama has more experience in policy work than John Edwards. Why does John Edwards get a pass on the experience question, but Barack Obama doesn’t? Oh, I think we all know why.
