TOWN OF NEWBURGH, N.Y., July 31 -- John and Elizabeth Edwards celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary today, and they and this small upstate town will not soon forget it.
The John Kerry campaign pulled its 10-bus caravan up to Wendy's restaurant to accommodate the vice presidential couple, who had their first date at the fast-food restaurant and always dine there on their anniversary . This is not one they will soon forget because the celebration included John and Teresa Heinz Kerry, Tom Brokaw, George Stephanopoulos, and 100 members of the media.
"So you understand, this is our anniversary. We always celebrate our anniversary at Wendy's," Elizabeth Edwards told the clerk as she ordered her Classic Combo Single.
Ditto for her mate -- but he went with cheese. And John Kerry went for the Chili and chocolate frosty. The power couples certainly caused a stir -- but it was Ben Affleck who moved with a throng. A Democrat and friend of Kerry's, the movie actor said he joined the trip to learn about the political process and not always be around just for the glamorous work.

"See this, Teraizzzza? This is called a disposable cup. Inside of it is something called "soda." Don't ask me why they call it that.
Do I really have to eat that? John never said it would be like this!
Why do the Dimocrats always look half retarded and ugly?
Mr. Kerry doesn't look like he's ever held a soda cup before, but Mrs. Edwards does.
I can see where she got the nickname Big Blue.
What long fingernails Mr. Kerry has!
After Mrs. Edwards left Wendy's, management had to scramble to replenish the food supply...
Damn, didn't anyone teach him to trim his nails?
I would be so mad if I was eating there and they all dropped in.
"I voted FOR the chili before I voted AGAINST it"
Did they celebrate with BERGERS?
A ten bus caravan? Hey, he is a real man of the people.
I would SO get my ass kicked if I tried to celebrate an anniversary at Wendy's.
Oh my God, someone PLEASE tell him to trim his nails! Yikes!
With all of that "hand shaking" and "baby holding" to do, he's going to injure someone! Or worse yet, he could cause a nasty scratch to his buddy John during one of their many embraces! (sorry, I'm out of control)...
How cute. Just 4 ordinary people, having and ordinary meal at a ordinary fast food place. Where is my air sick bag?
Nah.......he's just out trying to score points with his future Father-in-law!
Yah know, that would tick me off if I was a diner there and this "flock" of sheeple came stomping in and took over the restaraunt whil I was trying to have a nice normal meal.
Ask Edwards's wife. I'm sure she'll find them crunchy and delightful.
He took her to Wendy's?
What a cheap date.
Someone put him behind the counter in his bunny suit.
