The New York Times runs its Edwards profile story today and the only thing I got out of it is that he wants to be president (and talked about it as early as 1975), that he doesnt have any ideas, and he thinks people will vote for him because he is, well, sort of ordinary; people like him. This is what they mean by saying that he is the "anti-Gore candidate." Very unimpressive. The only reason he is being talked about is because he is from the South, is young, and good looking. He will announce on January 4th. See these few paragraphs on Edwards from The Scrum. He will not even get off the ground, in my humble opinion.
