WHO'S YOUR EARLY FAVORITE?
I was impressed with Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack on This Week this morning, so I went back and read his statement announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president.
There are a number of Democrats who I think would make a fine president -- Al Gore, John Edwards, Wes Clark, Tom Vilsack. I hope the nod won't go to Hillary Clinton (I can't forgive or forget her position on the Iraq war), Evan Bayh, Joe Biden (those two I'm pretty cynical about; their votes on the bankruptcy bill disqualifies them for me) or John Kerry (too bad, but he's unelectable).
UPDATE: David Sirota pretty well covers the reasons I didn't include Obama on my list.
