The Corner highlights what the three major Democrat presidential candidates said was their "greatest weakness" in their debate last night. Who sounds like a complete bullshi**er, and who sounds most honest?
John Edwards: My greatest weakness is that I care too much, Tim. For 54 years, I've been fighting. I emerged from the womb with my dukes up, ready to do battle with every fiber of my day-old being.
Hillary Clinton: My greatest weakness is that I get impatient — impatient with people who don't care as much about children as I do.
Barack Obama: My greatest weakness? Sometimes I misplace stuff. I'm a little disorganized. It's probably a good thing I'm not in charge of my own schedule.
If you're not wincing and guffawing at Edwards' answer, you're a very gullible dolt. Clinton's response is a close second in that regard, so that leaves Obama as this question's "winner," as lousy as his answer is.
My greatest weakness is probably my short fuse.
How 'bout you?

My greatest weakness is procrastination.
Seriously, though, I'd also have to go with procrastination.
greatest weakness - impatience with others taking their time coming around to my way of thinking!
Spending too much time on the internets.
Btw, Jason is still a dope but you have to admit his current blog looks way better than that old piece of crap he used to have.
My greatest weakness is that I do no suffer fools gladly.
I’d say defending my own preconceived notions before carefully considering the argument before me. Like going back to my canned response rather than responding to the actual point presented.
These blogs only exacerbate my problem! :-)
BTW Liberalgeek gets credit for any positive changes. All thypos and mispellings (which happen to be my weakness) are mine.
I heard Obama on NPR last night, and when asked about it, he said that after hearing Edwards' and Clinton's cheesy responses he should have said, "I stop and help old ladies across the street too much."
While I don't get tired of always being right, I do get tired of everyone else always being wrong.
