Thank you, my friends, for being smarter than me.
Remember earlier this year when you sent e-mails and made phone calls and talked politics with me as you tried to sway my vote away from John Edwards and toward Barack Obama? Remember how I said I just couldn't find a reason not to support John Edwards, how I said I thought he put the needs of the country first, how I said I simply trusted him, believed in him? Remember how I said I liked Obama, but how I continued to throw my support to Edwards until he left the race? And then remember how you voted in large enough numbers to put Obama in the lead?
You were right. I was wrong.
If Edwards were currently the presumptive nominee, John McCain would be on the fast track to the White House.
Next time, I will listen to you more carefully.
