I’ve mentioned before that we’re supporting John Edwards for President. We went down to San Francisco to see him in person a couple of weeks ago; that visit was reported in Salon.
The campaign has been shooting lots of video of Edwards and his family on their current swing through Iowa, and it’s interesting from the cultural standpoint, not just the political, just to see how one of these campaigns work. A diarist on Daily Kos gathered a bunch of the Iowa videos on one page. I love the one at the upper right, called “Very Serious Business,” which shows a familiar scene if you’re a parent. And another one shows how a future First Lady throws a football. That’s kind of reassuring; I find it hard to imagine Romney’s wife or Thompson’s trophy wife ever breaking a sweat.
