19. This article is wrong on so many levels
"Instead of moving from primary mode to general election mode, why don't we have tell-the-truth mode, all the time, and not say something different one time than we say another time?" Edwards asked pointedly last week in New Hampshire.

This statement makes him look foolish IMHO coming from the cosponsor of the IWR and coauthor of the patriot act.

If anyone says something different one time then another John is a great candidate for it. He hardly resembles the Edwards from last time around.

And Joe Trippi a cult figure?

Sorry but after what he did during the Dean campaign I have absolutely zero respect for this guy and I suspect many others feel the same. The fact that Edwards hired him actually shows poor judgment if you ask me.
