The Kerry campaign announced John Edwards today as its Vice Presidential running mate. Although I was hoping for Bob Graham, because Florida was such a battle ground last time, my heart did a little leap for joy about Edwards. Kerry is such a craggy old soul, and Edwards is so fresh and photogenic and has such a terrifically energetic presence and charismatic appeal, that I think it's a good choice. Kerry needs someone to campaign for him, since everytime he actually does go out and speak, his poll numbers slip.
So here's hoping that we elect a a president this November who can get out and walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to the inauguration instead of egged inside his limousine.
