63. I'm not anti-Edwards
I was just trying to answer the original question whether he was liberal or conservative. I was trying to show he's a mixed bag (like many Americans). He is my Senator and I helped elect him. If he were to become the nominee, I will vote for him as I did as Senator. In the primaries though, I'm for Clark (obviously). Concerning Clinton and Iraq, when the PNAC sent their letter to Clinton, he bombed, but didn't invade as he thought it was too radical of an idea.
