John Edwards is facing an uphill battle in South Carolina. May I offer a strong suggestion for improving his chances.

Black women constitute a substantial portion of Democratic primary voters. Address this group with the following powerful speech:

“Many in my audience today are African-American women. I know that, in this primary, you are facing a heart-wrenching decision. You are black, and you are female. You would like to take part in electing the first African-American President. You would be nice if there were a black womancandidate, but unfortunately that is not the case.] I know. I know. You are torn between two diametrically opposing votes. Hillary or Obama? Obama or Hillary? An impossibly difficult decision.

May I have the temerity to offer you a solution:

VOTE FOR JOHN EDWARDS.
