Edwards Bows Out, Three Remain

After true progressive Kucinich, my next choice for a presidential candidate was John Edwards. Edwards seemed to really see how our government has jumped the track. It's no longer for the people by the people, it has become by the corporation for the corporation. However, today Edwards is announcing that he is dropping out of the race. Leaving our choice of democratic candidates between Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, and yes there is another, the much ignored by corporate media, Mike Gravel.
Being in Massachusetts our primary is on Super Tuesday. I haven't decided who I'll vote for. I think at this point any of them will do a much better job then any of the fearmongering, religeous pandering, corporate millionaires on the Republican side. I do find myself leaning toward Obama simply for the fact he offers the biggest sense of change.

Don't waste your vote on obama.

I don't know what that means. The only wasted vote is the one never cast.

Simple, consider a candidate that actually has a chance of beating republicans nationwide. Did not suggest not voting.

Hmmm, I think Obama has a better chance. I like Hillary too, but Hillary provides too much fodder for the Republicans nasty campaign tactics. A lot of conservatives hate her and will make an extra effort to go out and vote against her, rather than for the GOP candidate. Obama doesn't rile them up as much.

Hillary will draw many more people to vote for her on the presidential especially women. The other will not, with him many will say one thing and then do another behind the both.
He has way much fodder than Hillary for a nasty campaing from his name and church to his ethnicity and associations. Many states would be lost because of him. Plus Hillary's policies are overall way much better.
In the end you've got to evaluate and decide if it's worth to risk four or possibly eight years more of republican rule.
The choice is obvious if you want to avoid that.

George Bush has pretty much guaranteed the next president will be a Democrat.

The one plus in being the most horrendous and anti-American president in our history is that he opened the door for either a black man or a woman to become president.

Not if McCain is the candidate. He is consider an independent maverick.
Hopefully the later cited by you will be the Democratic candidate in order to beat him.

That'd be great if McCain is the GOP candidate. Many evangelicals won't bother to vote.
