Edwards v. Bush in North Carolina

John Edwards is the weird darling of much of the media (including much of the Blogosphere) and of Democratic contributors.

However, the Associated Press and Charlotte Observer report:

U.S. Sen. John Edwards needs to shore up support at home as he seeks the presidency, according to a new poll. ... The poll found that 47 percent of active Tar Heel voters disapprove of Edwards' decision to seek the presidency, while 37 percent approve. ... The poll also determined that Bush would trounce Edwards in North Carolina, 56 percent to 40 percent. That is a slightly larger margin than Bush enjoyed in his win over Al Gore in the state in 2000.

"Right now, Edwards doesn't exactly look like he's the favorite of favorite sons," said Delair Ali, president of Research 2000, which conducted the poll.

That Delair Ali has a talent for understatement.

Senator Edwards has been serving up a complex, hedged line on his "support" of the war. That line should be subjected to more direct questioning. The Senator appears to be attempting to be on both sides of an issue on which someone running for President simply cannot be allowed to waffle.

For example, there are Pandora Earrings in the shapes of animals, letters, signs of the zodiac, abstracts accompanying to sports, and so abundant more. There is aswell a continued account of capacity available, including friendship, wedding, baby, travel, faith, anniversary, and even retirement charms too!
