John didn’t waste any time getting back to DC after the debate in Vegas.
He appeared in a roundtable discussion with Candy Crowley and David Gergen the very next night, during Friday evening’s edition of AC360.
We were provided with additional analysis of how the candidates fared.
Soledad asked John what Senator John Edwards’ “missed opportunities” might have been during Thursday night’s debate.
He said that Edwards needs to “step up to the plate” and make his speeches and presentations more than just about attacking Hillary Clinton. For example, Edwards questioned Clinton’s record and position on health care. Although Edwards’ own team felt he made some strong points about NAFTA during the debate, almost everything else he said was an attack on Clinton.
John summed up with a question on the minds of opposing camps as well as democratic strategists: “When are we going to hear more about ‘President Edwards’ as opposed to ‘Senator Edwards attacking Senator Clinton?’”
Where will JK be heading to next on the campaign trail? Your guess is as good as mine. Of course there is the Florida You-Tube debate coming up in about a week and a half, where he no doubtedly will be reporting from, but in the meantime I’m sure CNN will likely be sending him elsewhere to other hotspots along the campaign trail. That means John could be popping up soon somewhere in the states to watch.
(By the way, CNN has a great interactive map which shows upcoming key primaries. It’s presented in a manner which contains helpful information for us laypeople.)
Enjoy the remainder of your weekend everyone!
