John Edwards is rapidly moving towards a Presidential run in 2008 and is making an issue of poverty globally and nationally. It is a really compelling and atractive program and one that will definitely set him apart from all of the others, especially Hillary and the Safe Negro, Barack Obama. He has something special and a drive to succeed that is not discernable at first, but becomes more apparent as you examine his life and accomplishments. His book, “Four Trials” was very well written and heartfelt. It puts some flesh on the bone of who John Edwards is.
What is amazing is that I didn’t read it until this year. I really was not feeling Edwards in 2004. I never felt he was ready to be the Big Dog. This year, I feel differently. He is not gonna be my candidate, but he is acceptable. The fight to integrate the fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and his nominations to that court which Brooks Brothers suited racist Jesse Helms blocked, distinguish him as a fair-minded progressive. Senator Edwards is the type of man that insists on fair play that I want in the oval office.
