OK, I’™m really happy to see the competition narrowing for the Democratic nomination for 2008, but the numbers also show that Edwards will be the best candidate against the Republicans. I don’™t quite know how a trial lawyer ends up as the best candidate nationally, but there it is. Perhaps it’™s Edwards’™ southern accent?

It should be noted that all the candidates fare well against the potential Republican nominees, all of whom are carrying the weight of failed Iraq policy on their shoulders. As far as favorables are concerned, Obama leads Edwards by a teensy bit, and Hillary’™s unfavorables are far higher than anyone elses.

It’™s still early. I want several healthy and viable candidates here, and it appears we have three who are very strong. Good news, then.
