Other Dems ‘not even close’ in terms of general election appeal
Funny, I always see Edwards name towards the bottom on the polls.
“It’s not enough for you to like a candidate,” said the former trial lawyer, tanned and comfortable in his sharp blue suit. “It’s not even enough for you to agree with a candidate. We must—my party, the Democratic Party—we must nominate a candidate who will win the general election.”
And you sir, will not win. Al Gore, whom isn’t even running, has placed higher than you! See this as a sign.
“All the empirical evidence shows that I am the strongest general election candidate,” said Mr. Edwards from a small stage as the Chicago traffic flowed mutedly behind a glass-paneled wall.
What evidence? Your own polls?
“Well, this is not even close—who’s the strongest general election candidate. Every piece of empirical evidence shows you exactly the same thing that your gut will tell you anyway.”
Hmm. My gut tells me you’re a loser. Wanna know what my spleen thinks too?
Mr. Edwards attributed his opponents’ lead in national polls to media coverage, and pleaded with his audience not to be swayed by their impressive fund-raising totals.
Right. Money means nothing in a campaign. Just ask McCain. At least this loser isn’t saying not to trust the polls. That’s a bad sign for sure!
“It’s very important not to be deceived about what you see about a lot of national media attention and national Democratic primary voter polls, which are a direct reflection of whoever is getting publicity at that moment. That’s all they are,”
Oops, there’s your bad sign! Time to throw the towel in. Maybe you and McCain can retire and give someone better a chance.
