Tonight, it looks like John Kerry moves another step closer to the Democratic nomination. I’m not greatly surprised that New Hampshire went for him — that’s his backyard, after all — but I am disappointed in John Edwards’ performance.

I still think he’s the best candidate out there, with the best message… Of course, that means he doesn’t have a snowball’s chance.

However, a Kerry-Edwards ticket might be fun. You’d have “native sons” from the North and South, and a reasonable swath of rich and poor, war hero and social programs. A pretty good combination, I’d think.

The last I heard, Edwards didn’t want the VP, but if his performance isn’t better come next Tuesday — eight states, I think? — his tune may change.
