Iowa thinking

By Creature

As Walter Shapiro points out today in Salon, tonight is make or break for John Edwards. Since '04 he has banked on Iowa to propel him forward in this race and for the sake of competition, diversity, and choice, I hope he prevails. Without a victory in Iowa the likes of Chris Matthews will destroy him. I am not backing Edwards formally, but I do root for the underdog, especially when that underdog carries a blue-collar message. Obama may inspire me to hope, but Edwards inspires me to fight. I, for one, hope he wins tonight so he can fight another day.
