I'm Disappointed

John Edwards is about to announce that he's getting out of the race.

I knew his odds weren't great, but I liked his messages. I like what both he and Elizabeth stand for.

It was just bad timing.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not disappointed with my remaining choices. I am over the moon that the two top contenders are not white men. I'm proud of my country for finally considering candidates for their experience and knowledge rather than dismissing them due to their skin color or genitals. It's about time.

But still...there was just something about the Edwards. I would have been proud to have them represent my country too.

Do you really think that people are in favor of the 2 democrat candidates because of their skin color and genitals?

Hey, I have not decided who I like, but I definitely know who I don't. And if you think you know you would be wrong, teehee.

I, too, am sad that Edwards has dropped out. He seems to be the only one who even gave a rat's ass about us unimportant in Louisiana. Frankly, I am getting a little disgust at all the candidates antics.

Mamma said...

Yeah, I didn't really say that correctly. Have edited to clarify.

I'm glad race and gender are no longer an issue.

Yeah I'm disappointed to lose Edwards as a candidate (he had my vote) but agree with one plus two Jen that he'll carry on in other ways.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that race and gender are no longer issues... they just aren't the issues that they used to be.

Progress is grand.

I emant to add that if a democrat wins this election, they will look like my children.

*sigh* I'm disappointed, too. I now have to sit back and just watch what happens next, since he got my vote at the beginning of the month. One bummer about NH having to be "First in the Nation" is that the crowd doesn't get winnowed down before we vote.

I agree!

I was impressed with the Edwards campaign.

I wish them all the best.

Katrina said...

Heck I'm writing him in. Can't stand either other candidate.

I was gunning for him too. Lordy.

Ditto...

I'm with you, girl. I really like him also.

John Edwards proved once again the huge hurdles Southern white guys have of reaching the White House.

Am hearing this alot throughout the mom-o-sphere. Like you, am wishing him the best.
