    It was good that Edwards clarified that he agrees with Dean's focus, and bashed the attempts by the media to portray it as a big fight.

    Nevertheless, it would serve Edwards in the future not to step into messes like this one. If the media try to get him to attack a Dean statement, he should first demand to hear the context. In this case, the context was Dean talking about people being forced to wait eight hours to vote.

    It was a mistake for Dean to use the phrasing he did, and it was also a mistake for Edwards to allow the subject to become Dean-bashing instead of electoral reform. "I'm sure Howard meant to say ..." is a good way to get the topic on to what you want to talk about. While most Republicans work for a living, for example, those who've benefitted the most from the Bush tax cuts don't.

      Edwards needs to stay above the fray and allow Dean to be the hatchet man. Dean is free to roast all the weenies he wants in this job.

      I was surprised and extremely pleased when he stooped to accept the position in the first place. An extremely selfless act for a big name politician, and a very smart one.

      Now I am happy to see he is getting after his new duties with such relish.
