It's a pity indeed that Edwards is out. After these several years of negative publicity coupled with economic mismanagement, for the sake of international image, I'd say the US should show the world someone who could restore the country's reputation at home and overseas. I mean the world needs someone who could just simply be a decent guy, not necessarily heading a revolutionary turnaround, or declaring another crusade against something imaginary. In other words, we foreigners would want to see a Gerald Ford or a Jimmy Carter. . .
Obama winning or another Clinton, or even McCain (hope not!) would be way "too American" even for America. These folks seem to enjoy the limelight too much, which to me inevitably casts suspicion.
