121. So???
Edited on Wed Aug-15-07 12:51 PM by bobbolink
Your point would be...?

"he is quite familiar with poverty"

sigh... once more... being "FAMILIAR" doesn't make someone become an advocate! I dont' see or hear him doing any advocating!

MANY poor people, once they fight their way out of poverty, forget their roots, and don't look back. He could very well be one of those.

He may be a "good man", I'm sure even Hillary is a "good woman", but, unlike most liberals, I'm sick to death of people dying in poverty in this country, and want to see someone with the SPINE to CHANGE THAT!

edited to say: I don't need to "examine his life".... that means it's hidden enough that it's highly unlikely he will push many barriers. Edwards, however, has made it abundantly clear, and backs it up with ACTION.
