Kerry and Edwards, on the case

Charles Pierce, Altercating:

...the D's have nominated two terrific LAWYERS to make their case -- one a gifted prosecutor and the other a genius defense attorney.  I wouldn't want to be either a criminal defendant against Kerry, or a negligent corporate slug caught in Edwards's crosshairs.  It's like lining up against Jack McCoy and Atticus Finch simultaneously.  This is not a bad thing.  Americans love lawyers who WIN, no matter what side of the bar they're on.

Jack McCoy and Atticus Finch....yeah, that just about sums it up. I can't wait for the debates. The Kerry-Edwards campaign has already agreed to the commission's proposed schedule of two debates for the presidential candidates, one for the VP nominees; not surprisingly, the Bushies are stalling. I'm sure Rove's looking for some way to weasel out of the debates -- but even our sorry excuse for a press corps would pick up the scent of desperation if that happened.
