After the debate - Edwards goes sledding
Thought this was a very human moment:

)
From CBS News' Aaron Lewis:

JOHNSTON, IOWA -- How do you unwind after a an important political debate? Go sledding, of course.

That's what John Edwards did with his children Jack and Emma Claire following today's Des Moines Register Debate.

The "Main Street Express" pulled in at the top of a hill at Fort Dodge, a National Guard base in Johnston. Jack, 7, and Emma Claire, 9, jumped out of the bus with plastic sleds and Edwards and his wife Elizabeth followed.

2. That is my guy!
He knows what is important. Sledding w/ his kids real family values.

I hope they had a great time and made a memory that would last a life time.

5. We used to sled down that hill when I was kid
My cousin lived in Urbandale, in the summer we would go to the Camp Dodge pool and winter we would sled there. When I was kid we were amazed at the pool at Camp Dodge.

John Edwards, a real person for the real task of bringing dignity back to the office of President.

I just love Elizabeth and John. And Barack and Michelle.

Obama/Edwards, Edward/Obama. Wouldn't either of those be fabulous for '08?

14. We called those things "flying saucers" in Michigan.
They're loads of fun. The proper technique is to sit cross-legged in them and lean to keep them going straight.

I had an aluminum one the my auto-body-repairman dad used to bump out every fall to erase the previous winter's crashes.

What fun!!
