11. I don't think that Obama has done anything "brave" or shown any leadership on Iraq
I have read all the policy info on both of their websites and I think Edwards is the best hope we have to protect the middle class, and to get us OUT of Iraq. He won't increase the size of the Army, and he wants all our people out in 10 months.

Edwards at least admitted he was wrong to vote initially to give bush the war powers. The fact that our CURRENT congress, even with (slim) Dem majorities is still not holding the bush admin accountable, and that our current congress are still NOT enforcing their role in checks and balances, that troubles me a LOT MORE than the initial vote.

I was wobbling between Obama and Edwards a long time, and I came down on Edwards side. Both are good, strong candidates. I think either would serve us well.
