The '08 Democrat's Central Question

Who is more likely to build the political consensus to face the issues of today?

Is it Hillary? She's been detested for years by the right. Moreover, she is running as someone who has seen it all before, and can handle all the Republican attacks.

Is it Edwards? He ran with Kerry in 2004 and never has had a reputation for reaching out to conservatives. He wants to change America, but half of America is Republican, and he won't be able to do much without them.

Or is it Obama? He's running a campaign that calls for eliminating slash and burn politics, working across the aisle, and coming together as Americans to solve the difficult issues of today. During his years as a community organizer, his time as the president of the Havard Law Review, his eight years in the Illinois State Senate, and his two years (and counting) in the U.S. Senate, Obama has been praised by both Democrats and Republicans for listening to his opposition and developing practical solutions to tough problems.
