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.

Ok, now, can someone use that ZOOM lens on that carbunkle?
Well you'd like my hands, then.
I am rolling on the floor, thank you! Gives me something to think about on the drive home.
I wasn't aware that Wendy's had been in operation for 27 years.
SIZE 10?!? LM(size 6)AO
"She's so normal,'' Mrs. Riggio said of Mrs. Edwards. She said that during dinner, over plates heaped with fried chicken, pork ribs, beef ribs, macaroni salad, green beans and peach cobbler, Mrs. Edwards told her how hard it was to watch her weight during the campaign.
"She said she put away all her size 10's because she can't get into them and won't be able to until after the campaign,'' Mrs. Riggio said. "It was great to admit something like that. Very human.''

I can't help but think that Effin wears roomy "pleats and seats" trousers to disguise a pair of adult diapers.
Because they photograph well.
The better to scratch himself with and put in for a Purple Heart.
What a lovely manicure. Hands that have never done an honest day's work.
I'm betting that Heinz-Kerry did not order or eat (note that her meal wasn't specified). You know, I can respect that. There is no way in the world I could be convinced that she ever ate at Wendy's before and I don't think she would start now. I am beginning to think that this is why she also refuses to let sKerry kiss her in public. The man didn't do it before and why should she allow it only for a photo op?
Maybe he sports nail polish late at night!
See post 73. She had the chili, and looks like she ordered TEA!?!
The only size 10 on her is perhaps her shoe size!
This is not too far from me at all.
I am just glad I am down for the count and didn't get caught up in the traffic jam this visit caused.
Yep. They were in business when I was in high school, and I graduated 29 years ago.
29 years? My God, I'm approaching Old Farthood.
What, Denny's wasn't open?
