Already an hour in. Looks bad :(

Basically gives Kucinich the most friendly forum and pushes Edwards further away from the Nomination.

Actually this Mike Gravel bit is pretty entertaining.

I'd rather just watch them shoot themselves

I just read an article the other day, that said the endorsements of gay groups actually hurts a candidate more than it helps.

From what I've read and heard--the gays aren't a big fan of Edwards anyway. What he did in his debate with Cheney 4 years ago, and the way he acted towards Cheney's daughter turned many many folks away.

Obama offers as good as it can possibly get for both worlds -- electability in the form of not being too "in your face" with regard to controversial positions, alongside support of equal rights and other progressive measures.

This poll seems to agree:

Who's your candidate?
37% Barack Obama
24% Dennis Kucinich
19% Hillary Clinton
9% Mike Gravel
7% John Edwards
4% Bill Richardson

Not to mention that deal where his wife said he was uncomfortable around teh ghey or whatever.

Doesn't matter, he's running for VP anyway.

Was it from "Focus on someone else's Family" or "Concerned Sandy Vaginas for America"? :p

Drudge linked it from somewhere I think. I don't remember it being from some ideology group. Sounded plausible to me.

Oh, it's certainly possible that it does.

I just liked the sound of "Concerned Sandy Vaginas for America".
