I like Edwards as a representative of a historically Republican state.  The questions are: Can he even win North Carolina against McCain?  Can he overcome his association with the now sunken Kerry ship?  

I'm glad you liked my story; it was factual until the middle of paragraph two at which point it turned to probable future fact (from the hip).

I've been eating turkey sandwiches and driving a K-car for four years of college.  I am going to do it for three years of law school.  If doing it for 3-5 years of legal practice means that my 30th birthday present is no debt and a six-figure salary, happy birthday to me.

Prognostication from the hip:

A year before the midterm elections of 2006, Senator Clinton was hedging to the right (Pro-Life rallies in Utica, etc) based upon the perceived shift in the populace that accompanied the 2004 election.  Emboldened by the results in November 2006, she has hurled herself headlong back to her husband's posture (football that she is).

Recognizing that the Democrats have overestimated the mandate of the "not-Bush" midterm, the Republicans will seize an opportunity to play centrist to Dean's pinkos.  Not wanting to counter the Dem's "who-can-be-more-against-the-invasion" fringe-fest with an equally incendiary Mormon or risky New Yorker, the Republicans will give the nod to Senator John McCain. 

Facing off against the most disliked woman in America or the (potentially) youngest President in American history, the oldest President in American history will ride his track-record of co-authoring bills with Democrats to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

But that curb is going to have way more elbow room than usual.

Notice a decrease in total LSN applications listed.  Last year there were 539, this cycle boasts only 401.  Assuming that LSN is growing in popularity and exposure as most wonderful services do, that likely means a substantial reduction of the applicant pool.

According to LSN, there have been no rejections yet.  By the time Tuesday rolls around, we'll be more than two weeks beyond the point of last year's first batch.

Yale extends its deadline every year. Calm down.

Elders, truth?

I believe this is an exceptional year.

First rejections:

'04-'05: 1/28
'05-'06: 2/2
'06-'07: 2/17...

If you haven't witnessed one, you would have to think creatively, which I would classify as intelligent rather than wise, having done none of the reading.
