Ask me again why I like John Edwards

Sadly, there appears to be only one Democrat with a spine who is actually saying what needs to be said, instead of walking on eggshells, terrified that they might make Karl Rove angry.

Conceding to the president on full funding for the Iraq war is a serious mistake. It is time to force an end to this war, and the only way for Congress to do that is to use its funding power. Any compromise that funds the war through the end of the fiscal year isn't a compromise at all, it's a capitulation. As I have said repeatedly, Congress should send the president the same bill he vetoed again and again until he realizes he has no choice but to start bringing our troops home.

Funny how Edwards only developed this spine once he left the Senate. Where was his spine when he voted for this war? Harry Reid had it right when he told Edwards to butt out. Edwards is the only Democrat other than Lieberman that I won't support. I don't care what your politics are, but don't criticize your fellow Democrats in order to further your political career.
