Fresh Faced

The article focuses on presidential candidates, especially John Edward, with the opinion that he looks too young to be president. No matter how much he talks about his law career, his family, or his economic plan, people see Edwards and think he should be sipping a malted after high school basketball practice. Conscious of this, Edwards's campaign took great care to publicize his fiftieth birthday in June. Massachusetts senator John Kerry has blamed his looks for some of his troubles. Kerry often suggests his mug is partly responsible for the sense that he's cold and pretentious, but he loves his height. That's meaningful if you consider that the taller candidate has won ten of the 13 presidential elections since World War II. Fortunately for Kerry, his two main rivals, Howard Dean and Wesley Clark, are not tall men.
