Why are Americans putting so much time and effort into shaping the message of John Edwards' presidential campaign?

Why are you doing this when Dennis Kucinich already stands for everything you hope John would stand for?

If you put your time, money, and effort into Dennis, Dennis would be right behind Barack Obama for the presidency and have a shot at being a top-tier candidate for Americans to consider.

We saw John in 2004. We saw Dennis too but John made it to the Democratic ticket as a vice-presidential ticket.

He didn't ignite and rally the Democratic Party and he won't know. He's too fake.

Dennis---now, he's the real thing. He's the only REAL Democrat running for president.
