Pres. Nominee chooses obscure Sen.

When else have we been down this road before? I seem to remember back in 1988 when George H.W.Bush picked an obscure Indiana Senator named Dan Quayle to be his running mate and he was belittled for it. The media was complaining of Quayle's lack of "gravitas". Now I know that the mainstream media is going to treat Edwards with kid gloves because he is a democrat, but it is an interresting moment of history repeating itself. John Edwards is a lightweight. Besides being a senator for the last six years, he has no real experience to speak of. I don't count chasing ambulances as experience if your wondering. Edwards even admitted that he didn't start voting until a few years before he ran for the senate. I think we have a case hear of Kerry getting a short lived bounce out the decision, but then as reality sets in, the country is going to fall back on the experience and leadership of Bush/Cheney.
