The John Edwards Test

is a great article from RedState.

The Obama campaign and its supporters have been quick to throw around charges of racism when their candidate has been criticized. I propose the following easily-applied thought experiment before evaluating such charges: would Republicans say the same thing about John Edwards?

It’s a well developed post with some interesting insights.

What it did for me the best was make me realize that the race is not over yet. John Edwards was way better looking than John Kerry, but he didn’t win the nomination… So the fact that Obama is significantly younger and very handsome is not a guarantee that he will win.

Big sigh of relief.
