Random Thought

Shouldn’t John Edwards being running against Elizabeth Dole right now? Yes, there are two credible candidates running, but Edwards would bring more money, a higher profile, and couldn’t-be-higher name rec. Most importantly, though, there’s no better way to show you can beat a one-term incumbent Republican senator from North Carolina than beating a one-term incumbent Republican senator from North Carolina. I can understand if he wants to spend more time with his wife now, but if he’s up for it I think he’d be a great candidate, despite my differences with him.

  1. Previously I had the impression that Edwards had made some votes (such as against Tobacco subsidies) that wouldn’t play in North Carolina in order to run for President with a clean slate.
    Still this would seem like a good match up and chance to use his high profile.
