While Edwards and Kerry should make a visit to Iraq, it is my belief that it will only make them look desperate for the military votes. I would't want them going there bad mouthing Bush to our troops. There also is the probability of some of the troops who absolutely disagree with this war and the President to take it upon themselves to express their anger to Edwards and Kerry. Which will only give Kerry and Edwards ammunition against Bush. So, I actually like the idea of them not going. If you think about it, whether they go or not it makes them look bad regardless. If they go, they look desperate for the military votes, if they don't go it makes them look absolutely unconcerned about the troops.
Hmm. Desperation or apathy. I think if I had to, I'd rather look desperate than apathetic.
... IF the military votes are even COUNTED. Last I heard, it was expected that many military votes from overseas would not make it here by the deadline to be counted.
