108. I didn't say that at all
I absolutely love John Edwards, his wife, and his children. I love the fact that as a trial lawyer he has helped many poor people achieve redress from nasty corporations. I made a special effort to go see him speak.

Any candidate who is willing to place a target like a $400 haircut in the middle of his or her forehead is asking for a comment about it, diverting attention from real issues. It's foolish. Bill Clinton already taught everyone about a haircut on the tarmac at taxpayers' expense. We can learn a lot from his mistakes, but oftentimes humans have a difficult time learning from history. The "logic" of wasting money does escape me, and a $400 haircut is wasteful in my opinion. I wonder if Jimmy Carter had a $400 haircut. I do recall that he asked to be transported in a Chevy Impala, I believe, rather than a limo, and was derided for that. I liked his values.
