We waited for the two Johns to step on stage this morning, hoping to hear them tell us about their happy union. It did not happen in time, and we turned to our trusted listeners to tell us who they thought were the best political speakers. The greatest hits led us down memory lane Mario Cuomo, Bill Clinton, Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King Jr.,Robert Kennedy, Barbara Jordan. Our sitting president did not make the line up, although one caller did defend Kerry's lack of charisma.
One thing that has been brought up over and over again in the last 24 hours has been the critique of Edward's inexperience. The worry over what we will all do if Kerry dies seems to be too much for some. Perhaps this will provide a little distraction if George Bush dies our next president will be a man with serious heart problems.
