46. He did not leave the body in the dust
Edited on Fri Sep-14-07 12:09 PM by liskddksil
John Edwards left the senate because he made a firm committment that he was going to run for president in 2004 and not seek reelection as senator unlike some other candidates who wont make a committment either way. He has unequivocally apologised for his support of the war and offers a reasonable plan to end the war. Just because he is not in the senate right now does not mean he doesnt have the right to urge the American people to call on Congress to do what they were elected to do and set a firm timeline.
