Presidential Notes

A note about two Democratic presidential candidates:

John Edwards is resolved. In today's Iowa debate he had a wonderful answer to a question on his New Year's resolution. It shows a unusually and markedly rational knowledge of his place in the world. He points out that all the candidates will be fine regardless of how the election goes, but that those in fragile economic or medical do not have such a safety net. Worth watching.

Barack Obama wants women. Lots of them. To feather the nest the campaign has set up Women for Obama ( It has a blog, a place for individuals to tell "why I support Obama" stories, and abstracted stands on issues perceived to be of interest to women. Worth looking at.
