59. maybe as time goes on, the guy behind the guy will emerge
and you'll like him more.

cuz if you like shaker-uppers, you and he would be a good match.

he is really doing politics in a different way (a la Kucinich, Dean)...he is not following the classic playbook in his approach, and definitely not in his policies - like admitting point blank that in order to get the social programs needed to restore this country, it's going to cost money. No politicians ever admit this.

And Iran - he said the most remarkable thng on Russert a few months ago:

Russert: Would a President Edwards make sure that Iran never went nuclear?
Edwards: (loosely paraphrased) We don't need to make proclamations like that. There is so much more to be done diplomatically, there are also peaceful uses of nuclear technology. We want to keep an eye on it, very closely, but we want to work to the point where we don't have to be coming to a head about this if we don't have to. Let's work through diplomatic channels to resolve this without saying, right now, 'NEVER'. Such a proclamation precludes the necessary diplomacy.

This is so counter to normal political machismo. He can lead us into a new day.
