DES MOINES — John Edwards violated all the old rules when he announced his
candidacy for the White House on Thursday. No theme music, no balloons, no
adoring family at his side, no stage filled with enthusiastic supporters. No
stage at all.
He looked anything but “presidential,” wearing blue jeans
and an open-collar shirt, rather than suit and tie. He had no prepared text,
speaking instead from a practiced set of talking points but with no guaranteed
applause lines and few perfect sound-bites.
Perhaps Mr. Edwards has figured out how frustrating the standard campaign artifice is to the average joe (if the average joe is anything like yours truly).
I like where this is going.
Fat Americans, rejoice!
(And remember this when some asshole tries to tell you that Canadian drugs are cheaper because American pharmaceutical companies are doing so much more heavy-duty research.)
Edwards is talking about universal health care, and slinging his good old “work, not wealth” mantra. I can probably get behind him again, but I may swing in Obama’s direction if he runs.
Here’s what I asked for this year:
I think that’s a pretty humble list.
Here. I can’t be a Scrooge when Calvin and Hobbes are involved.
