Killing them with kindness, Barak Obama told an audience yesterday that fellow Presidential contender John Edwards was “kind of cute” but he was curious to what he had to say.
Now I am not an advocate for Barak Obama, but he does have a great sense of humor concerning his opponents for the democratic nomination. Obama is recognizing that we are a ways out from the primaries and that too much rhetoric will be lost, but planting the seeds of doubt about his competitors now while he is the media darling will bear great fruit later on.
And there is the one thing we know about Edwards, he is an opportunist that tends to swim in the shallow end of the pool amongst Washington’s elite thinkers. His good looks and aw shucks demeanor are his greatest assets and why he was Kerry’s running mate.
Think about it, Kerry had to pick someone who would make him look smart. Enough said.
