I second that!

Hope you come back often.

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

welcome

Thanks for the greetings and warm words!

Welcome back to you.

Two Americas would be the underpinning of a campaign if John decides to run, but the campaign would not simply be a reprise of 2004 -- we know the problem, John identified it and with Katrina, the nation was hit in the face with the truth of it. Now it is time to move forward from that with actual ideas and a commitment to end poverty, to end the diffences in health care, education, to end the imbalances in the tax system, to promote our rural communities with the same vigor we once gave (and need to give again) to our urban communities.

That is precisely why...

That is precisely why, my first choice for a Presidential candidate is John Edwards, someone is not afraid to speak out on our core values as Democrats---ensuring that ALL of us have equal accesss. 47 million without health insurance, 36 million in poverty, a ridiculously low minimum wage, racism continues to run rampid...and where are the Democrats?

Senator Edwards is fighting the good fight--the real Democratic fight even though it's not as polticiallly palatable to some. That's backbone. Senator Edwards is someone whom I want fighting for my children---for all of our children.

It really is. Shameful

And embarrassing. I was talking to a Republican recently, who had no idea that there were 47 million Americans without health insurance in this country. How could he have missed that?!

"It doesn't have to be that way..."

just bringing up the issue

Edwards has had the courage to bring up issues that others won't touch and to be seen with labor!

ontherise

I love your name! And...we are, on the rise. woot.

Yes, many politicians figure, since the working poor don't really vote and can't contribute financially, why bother? Sad.

Do you think that blogs are changing

the face of politics...and do you think that politicians should recognize this change and jump in? I for one have more of a feeling of ownership since I have begun political blogging. I felt that the MSM was not giving me the whole or true picture of politics and when I first found the DNC blog and then BlueNC, I jumped in with both feet.

Whole picture

Great work is done on the blogs -- some of the best investigative work - 60 Minutes on the R side, Duke Cunningham on the D side was done by the blogosphere. It does more than provide another source not constrained by advertisers and linear inches; it also puts pressure on the MSM, which has had a mixed record of late.

I'm Late!

Mrs. Edwards,

Thanks for joining us here and for all the work you do. I would have arrived earlier, but my work as a Child and Family therapist kept me occupied. It's in the professional vein I'll ask
:

What sorts of mental health legislation/initiatives do you feel are most important for the federal govt. to undertake?

Mental health parity

is the place to start. And to include it as part of a universal health care plan.

I know we're going to lose you shortly

so on behalf of all, please accept our deep appreciation for the gift of your time, your listening, and your wisdom. You're the best.

"Cleaning up" the undone

Being willing to "clean up" even when it is HARD work is the sign of a great leader, and a great parent. So much symbolism in language. Stay well, and best to your family. Very grateful for your time and thoughts.

And people who won't do that hard work

like the Mess-Maker-in-Chief in the White House, should not be allowed to get away with it.

A

PS Nice comment on the symbolism in language. Welcome.

What a treat to start our day

You have been gracious with your comments and time here. Please come back anytime (now that you are registered) and share your thoughts with us. Hearing from either you or John always gives me hope for our country.

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Yes, Benny

We owe much appreciation to Robert who did the thing that matters most: he took action.

This was wonderful

worked late (very late) last night so I could stay here this morning. Sleep is for sissies. :) Now i gotta scoot. Duty calls. w00T!

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Thanks, Robert

Nice morning.

Wow

As if the article on Jerry's question wasnt big enough I am pretty sure this thread might get us even more attention.

The way that Sen Edwards speaks, and what he speaks about has had me convinced he would make an excellent president for a long time. The embracing that has been done of the online community has me convinced he is doing what needs to be done outside of the normal fundraising and appearances to win. Im excited.
