Edwards leapfrogs Kerry?

John Edwards has posted on his own weblog:

John Edwards: Welcome to my campaign's official Blog!
...I'm new to this whole thing, but it's very exciting, and I thank you all for helping make this a community for us all to talk.

...I want to tell each and every one of you that I thank you for your involvement with our new blog.  I encourage you to stay active both with the campaign and this web site.
Straightforward, simple, a little humble - not bad, and it will serve as a nice bit of direct encouragement for anyone following Edwards. People who follow campaigns thrive on the idea that they're being communicated with directly, even if it's only the least little bit.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think John Kerry has posted any entries of his own on his site (which was up weeks before Edwards'). Kind of weird for a candidate's blog.

Dean has, Kucinich has, Graham has.

Can't Kerry be bothered? (His wife can...) Or have I just missed it?

After Clark's erratic and uneven campaign launch, and after learning that the man apparently voted for Nixon in 1972, I'm about ready to move Edwards above Clark in my rankings. He hasn't really pissed me off yet, and given this field, that's saying a lot!
