The old Edwards and the new Edwards.
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Mon Aug-14-06 06:39 PM by MATTMAN
* The Old Edwards was booed by Democratic activists for supporting the war in Iraq. The New Edwards has become a leading critic of the war and is often hailed by the same liberal bloggers who helped bring down moderate Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman in last week's Democratic primary.

* Old Edwards had the financial backing of trial lawyers. New Edwards is courting the organizational muscle of labor, as well.

* Old Edwards was viewed as a foreign affairs greenhorn. New Edwards has been jetting around the world to meet leaders in Russia, Britain and the Middle East. He works anecdotes into his speeches about the slums of New Delhi and the view of the Israeli/Lebanon border.

* Old Edwards talked about the inequality of what he called the Two Americas. New Edwards has fleshed out that theme by starting an anti-poverty think tank in Chapel Hill and outlining proposals to end poverty in the next generation.
