Do We Have a Contender?
Senator John Edwards a Democrat from North Carolina announced he was forming an exploratory committee to run for the 2004 Democratic nomination for president. He joins Massachusetts Senator John Kerry and Vermont Governor Howard Dean. Will only these three run? Probably not! Other possible candidates include: Missouri Congressman Richard Gephardt, Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman and South Dakota Senator Thomas Daschle. Oh yeah, and then there’s also Al Sharpton. But are any of them true contenders? It really is hard to gauge at this point. If I had to make a prediction, I’d say that Senator Kerry was leading the race for the nomination. Why not Senator Liberman? Let’s just say he’s got too much Gore baggage. Of course, I’m not counting out Senator Edwards. Afterall, the last three presidents have come from Southern states.
Whoever get it, I hope they study the first Clinton presidential campaign. He successfully demonstrated how to dethrone a popular Republican president!
