With the recent nomination of John Edwards as Democratic VP candidate, I thought it’d be a good idea to post some of all the candidates’ ideas, support, opposition, and votes.

Candidate 1: JOHN EDWARDS

There is a lot to like about Edwards, including his last name raspberry

That said, I think there is just a bit of favoritism :mischeif:

I saw your Cheney post…I am curious as to what the Bush one will look like! Either way, great job on summarizing here!
