Edwards as Kerry's VP Choice

Kerry's decision choosing Edwards has absolutely no strategic affect on the election. Only choosing Hillary would have really made a difference in the race. Predictions by the White House that Kerry could be ahead by as much as fifteen percent after the convention at the end of the month are nonsense and Bush's team knows it. Kerry is behind now and falling further behind, no matter what the polls seem to say. The Democratic convention will not give Kerry any real lift in the polls, but if Democrats can convince Kerry to withdraw and they choose a new candidate in an open convention, it will be huge.
