Response to UnrepentantLiberal (Reply #129)

Mon Apr 23, 2012, 06:58 PM

134. I never really saw that from Obama. Edwards and Kucinich were more liberal.

From what I remember of 2008, those two were far more willing than Obama to criticize free trade and speak about the haves and have nots in America. Both Hillary Clinton's health care proposal and John Edwards health care proposals were more substantial than what Obama proposed on the campaign trail, and Kucinich believed in John Conyers' effort to expand Medicare with his Medicare For All bill. Obama never signed onto that.
