225. Why is it "Kool Aid" to have a different opinion and experience?
My experience in life is that the way a man or women lives *does* have an effect on their ability to understand others. Why are my observations less valid than yours?

I am not having an emotional response. I prefer and would accept John Edwards over some others. But that does not mean I will not push for more responsible and representative leadership. Some of the points here are valid. And I have listened. I am just not convinced that, in the long run, most with servants and mansions can really, ultimately, make a just society.

There is something just a little bit sick about having such a large house... empty rooms that you do not need. And ecologically, it is abusive and irresponsible.

Now that is an intellectual, and non-emotional response. I think you are attached emotionally to this candidate. Which is fine. But don't try to emotionally frame other points of view. Open your perspective just a bit more please.
