ANDREW SULLIVAN is endorsing John Edwards:

For the Democrats to nominate a Southerner for the fourth time in four election cycles may make electoral college sense, but it still slights the parts of the country that are more dependably Democratic. Still, I like his politics – they seem sanely to the right of, say, Al Gore. And he has a touch of the Tony Blair about him: the slick yet somehow earnest combination. Hard to pull off.

I really don’t have an opinion of Edwards yet. He doesn’t even trigger an irrational like or dislike in me when I see him on TV. Oh, well, I’m sure I’ll hear enough about him to form an opinion long before it will actually matter.
