John Edwards: I'm pulling THEIR coverage in 2009!

This morning, in a speech in Iowa, Hillary Clinton will offer her healthcare reform proposal.

I hope everyone will listen carefully to what she has to say. The early word is that it's not exactly what we're all hoping for, but it's a start.

The big news in fact is coming from John Edwards. If the traditional media is true to form, they will punt the Edwards announcement. Shame on them. Here's what CNN is reporting.

The campaign of fellow Democrat John Edwards, which has already put out a detailed a health care plan, will up the ante Monday during a speech to the Laborers' International Union of North America in Chicago, Illinois, campaign sources said.

The Edwards proposal would cut off health care for the president, Congress and all political appointees in mid 2009, if a universal health care plan for all Americans has not been passed by then.

Edwards is expected to outline "basic principles" the health care plan would have to meet, the sources.
