So, Bill Richardson is gonna run for Prez. Great--I think he'd be a great candidate.

But, minor problem. We now have Hillary (woman), Obama (half black, middle name Hussein, first name awfully like Osama, as Fox never hesitates to point out), and Richardson (hispanic).

In Canada, we'd be fine. I just don't have faith that Americans are in a place where a woman or minority could get elected president.

Enter John Edwards.

I wouldn't vote for him based on his race or gender but you're right, people do vote along those lines.

I think it's interesting that the two most talked about candidates of both parties are from the same party and they're both minorities. Being a woman isn't a "minority" but being a woman running for president is.

It's my hope that all of this gets brushed aside in favour of those other issues.... cough Iraq cough American poverty cough cough.

Fox News will continue reminding people about Barack's middle name "Hussein" but will fail to tell people it's actually Arabic for "handsome" and Fox will remind people of all the nicknames it has for Hillary's husband.

I think you'll see Edwards sneak up between these two very competent candidates in the first three weeks of the primaries.
