The NH Primary

We decided yesterday to send you two New Englanders, a North Carolinian, and an Arkansan as candidates for the Democratic nomination to replace George Bush as President.

I test out to be a "left-liberal libertarian. As a registered independent, I was able to go in to the polls, declare my affiliation with the Democrat Pary, and vote. I wound up voting for Edwards after having leaned toward Dean for most of the Primary season. I think that displacing Bush is going to be very, very difficult for any Democrat, but doubly so for a liberal New Englander. Edwards has a fresh face, attractive ideas, speaks and campaigns effectively, and could have a shot at doing it. If he should make it through to the convention and the nomination, I wonder if he'll be able to withstand the onslaught of Karl Rove and the RNC.

It does matter.

By the way, right after I voted, I switched back to being an independent again.
