New Kids

It was humorous watching Matt Lauer go after John Edwards today on whether he was a possible VP nominee, commenting on how the two of them, (Barack and Edwards), looked so good on stage together the other night.

Can you imagine a more ridiculous combination? Let's see, Edwards spent about 4 years in the U.S. Senate before running for higher office, and Barack spent about a year there before his presidential run, so between them they'd have 5 years experience in national politics.
However, he did leave open the possibility of becoming attorney general, saying merely, "I don't want to get involved in that kind of speculation. Right now, we've got to focus on getting Barack Obama elected president of the United States, and then we'll worry about those things."
Meanwhile, the New Kids on the Block also appeared on the Today show today, giving their first concert in 15 years, meaning they've been broken up for 3 times as long as Edwards and Barack have been at the millstone doing the hard work of gaining the requisite experience to lead the free world.
