Colmes: Could Edwards right now have an effect on the outcome of this race if he wanted?
Morris: He might, but at the moment his voters are those that can't decide which they don't like more---a black or a women getting elected. And..
Colmes: Wait, wait, you're saying his voters are bigots?
Morris: I'm saying a lot of his voters are there because they don't want a women and they don't want a black.
Colmes: So his voters are bigots is what you're saying.
Morris: No, I said what I just said.
Morris: And if Edwards withdrew God only knows where they'd go.
After being pressed on it some more by Alan Colmes---Morris finally said that he thinks Edwards is a good man and brought in some vague "exit poll" data to justify his original position. Hannity chirped in with the "anti-Hillary vote" defense to try and help dig him out as well. In Dick's opinion, the Edwards voter is just going to the ballot box because they hate the black and they hate the female...What's the word for that frame of mind?
John Edwards has done a good job of articulating his populist positions and had attracted a large number of voters, (not enough to stay in the race) none of whom made their choice because a "woman" or a "black" is in the field. He was a very popular VP nominee back in '04 as well and many people felt he was the better candidate. Morris knows this all too well, but wants to slam a portion of the Democratic Party. His motives are obvious from his own past behavior...Dick's website is a pay site...Figures...
