The Last Stand of John Edwards (Brent Budowsky)
Still AN Excellent Chance for Edwards 25 - 24 - 18 is Still Anybodys game

The Last Stand of John Edwards (Brent Budowsky)

http://pundits.thehill.com/2008/01/11/the-last-stand-of... /

Before suggesting how John Edwards might revive his candidacy, let me emphasize the most important predictions I am making here: that the nomination of neither party will be decided on Super Tuesday; that Edwards has a chance to break out in upcoming debates; and that the mainstream punditry, from the insider class to the contrary, is,
in my view, flat-out wrong, as usual.

First I want to thank The Hill for formally naming me as a regular columnist with a column that will run every Tuesday, plus my postings on this Pundits Blog and perhaps the occasional additional op-ed if issues demand and space permits.

I consider myself not a pundit, but a counter-pundit or anti-pundit and write for the record here that I am appalled by what passes for political commentary today and hope to give some voice to an alternative point of view.

PS: Take That Lawrance O'Donnell - No Dem should drop out before Super Tuesday

3. Edwards , Obama and the lobbyiests (why not call it bribes)
Edited on Fri Jan-11-08 04:13 PM by kelligesq

Regarding Tom Donahue's Chamber of Commerce (infamous for his recent anti-populist threat -see Los Angeles Times, "Populists Beware" aimed at John Edwards and the American electorate) which is responsible for the outsourcing and loss of millions of American jobs and the insourcing of white collar and IT workers to take more American jobs.

While Obama is one of their main men for receiving contributions(why dont we just plain out call it what it is: legal bribes) as well as other lobbies not working in the best interest of the American people, such as the National Association of Manufacturers (the factory you worked at is closed down?)
and The Business Roundtable.

Harpers Magazine
http://209.85.165.104/search?q=cache:QSIUlIICOBQJ:www.h...

"Individual contributors to Obama include some of the best-connected lobbyists in town, including Jeffrey Peck (whose clients include MasterCard, the Business Roundtable, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce) and Rich Tarplin (Chevron, the American Petroleum Institute, and the National Association of Manufacturers). "

-snip-

"consider the following: in one of his earliest votes as a senator, Obama helped pass a class-action reform bill that was a long-standing and cherished goal of business groups. (The bill was the focus of a significant lobbying effort by financial firms, who constitute Obama's second-biggest single bloc of donors.) "


Thanks Obama for helping to close out my ability as an American consumer to fight back in a Court of Law against big corporations who refuse to consider my safety and welfare.

Tell me,Obama, exactly who should we believe is a popullist and is going to bring change to stop the corruption of the American government?
