Hope the link works.

Henry Ryan,
Call Monitor
"Gosh darnit, that's because the American people just plain old deserve better."

Margaret Bolton,
Lighting Technician
"Edwards continues to show real leadership. Most people would have waited until all 50 nominating contests were finished, but this guy stepped up after 47."

Ken Sutton,
Systems Analyst
"I guess there really are two Americas: the America in which he announced his endorsement in May and the America in which he announced his endorsement in February when it might have mattered."

5. If Edwards acted as POTUS the way he endorses, we'd have weathervanes all over the White House roof.
What a disappointment, as I supported him at one time, but Profiles In Courage he ain't. :(

8. I'm glad he waited.
I don't even want to think about the clintonistas reaction if he had endorsed earlier.
