Whyyy? Whyyy, John Edwards, whyyy? Whyyy must y'all butcher the accent I love?
For a guy who just finished second (he's claiming it; not sure about the tallies), Edwards is about the gloomiest winner since Ed Rollins. He's talking about fear and desolation and greed and the shame-- SHAME, I tell you-- we should all feel for not having elected his one-term Senator butt in 2004 to fix the mess we're in through a powerful combination of weepy anecdotes, vague socialist promises, and the engendering of internecine class wars. Cheery!
Update: Hillary speaks: "We're gonna take this enthusiasm straight to New Hampshire. This is a great night for Democrats."
She's being very magnanimous. She's saying tonight shows the country will have a "Democratic" president next year, but she's not presuming she'll be it. Sort of unintentionally defeatist rhetoric.
She sounds tired.
