Now, now KP ...

... as Senator Corzine explained on TV this morning, he is far more needed out on the campaign trail. Surely you couldn't expect him to show up to vote while he was campaigning to be the Veep selection either? LOL.

I'm a bit surprised at the reaction to Edwards. I still hear pundits punditizing (is that a word?) about how this run situates Edwards for 2008 should Kedwards fail this year. I don't get it. He didn't run for re-election to the Senate because he would likely have lost. His unremarkable Senate record has now been pretty well vetted, and in '08 what more would he bring to the table? Neither a Senate seat or the Governorship is up for election again until '08 (if my math and quick research is correct), and a run for Congress would be a step backwards. So I fail to see how he would even be seen as someone to consider for VP candidate again in '08 with, presumably, Hillary making her expected run.

He is as phoney.............

......as his running mate. For some of the same reasons,
and for some unique to himself.

But you paint that rotten board with a heavy coat of
liberalism, and there are buyers.

From a North Carolinian.......

...And we didn't vote for him then either!

He isn't universally loved in this area of NC
even though his "home town" is only a short
drive from here......

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
