    The Edwards' add substance to any ticket, especially since HRC's post-debate attack personna over this past month his mired this race into the worse kind of 'silly season' carrying the media down with her into the worse kind of tabloid journalism and political pandering. It is refreshing to see a Dem leader demonstrate that this election is really about people and issues that serious-minded Americans actually care about!

    Is she endorsing Obama at the forum? If not, it's really not news worthy.

    Obama/Edwards in 2008 (Her husband will soon be the Vice President... that's what makes this story news-worthy).

    I would like to comment on something Elizabeth said this morning on Morning Joe. She was asked about Hillary and Obama's Health Care Plans and she said that Hillary's Plan was better than Obama's It will cover all Americans and his wouldn't. In order for this issue to be resolved once in for all it needs to be a Universal Health Care Plan. It's going to take a lot of work to get it done and Hillary is the only one that can do it. If we don't do it now we will never get all those Americans out there without Insurance Insured. Please make the right choice and vote for Hillary to get this done.

    So, why all the Edwards coverage? Is he going to be on the Clinton ticket? Two stories on his wife in a day seems a bit odd unless there's more to it.

    I hope that she speaks with Dr.Marvin Kalb while she is there. He has a whole different perspective on the media coverage of these primaries. I had the opportunity to speak to him and he is very insightful and has the abilty to get to the real problems with the bias in media coverage. By the way, Sneator Clinton has the edge on the media no matter what she says.
