John Edwards soon to be employed????

You might have heard recently that John Kerry hasn't shut the door on running again in 2008. Yes, we can all laugh, but I'm certain John Kerry is quite serious about it. However, he obviously realizes to have any sort of success he must neutralize his biggest obstacle - the Swifties. Yet, how might he go about doing so and "clearing his name"? Threats, of course. Threats to sue. Look what Page 6 at the NY Post started talking about:
Now, "the Kerry camp is thinking about filing a libel lawsuit against Regnery and O'Neill," a source close to the candidate's inner circle tells PAGE SIX. "I don't know if they will actually go forward, but consideration is serious. If Kerry plans on running again in 2008 — and I'm hearing he will — it would make sense that he'd file the suit."
Tah dah! Let these threats leak and if they don't work what do you do? Let the lawyers write really nasty letters filled with double talk and no substance.

So, who do you hire to do this? Maybe a certain former Senator from the great state of North Carolina - one John Edwards? Could it be? Would it be? Is he itchin' to do it?

HECK NO!!! John Edwards wants to be President. He's not going to help John Kerry's chances to win the nomination, again. Nor would he let himself get wrapped up in Kerry's web of chaos a second time - (Gollum voice) it's too risky. Remember this paragraph from Newsweek:
"[Edwards' aides] warned the veep candidate that the story was already out of control and about to get worse. Historian Douglas Brinkley, author of a wartime biography of Kerry, cautioned that Kerry's diary included mention of a meeting with some North Vietnamese terrorists in Paris. Edwards was flabbergasted. "Let me get this straight," the senator said. "He met with terrorists? Oh, that's good."
No, I think RadioBlogger nailed it on the head the Thursday following the election on who should be the most nervous people in America. Sucks to be them.
