    but I can't recommend you twice. Hillary's worthless and Obama is an empty suit, and they're both corporate shills when it comes down to it. Edwards actually gives a damn about making life better for actual working people. Thus he is the one who must be demonized.

    Also, legitimate passion and speaking truth to power must be demonized: only carefully-calculated "centrist" positions must be allowed to Dem candidates. Go read what Amanda wrote, if you haven't yet. It's exactly what most of us thought about NO in the aftermath of Katrina. But to vent our righteous outrage at the sheer mendacity, viciousness, incompetence and racism of our government is a no-no, because it might alert others to those qualities. Thus Amanda must be portrayed as a hater, someone out of the mainstream -- because to do otherwise would be to admit that she is precisely the mainstream on these issues, and it's the VRWC and the corporatist establishment that represents the fringe viewpoint.

      Obama's first senate bill was to increase Pell Grants for poor college students. The Republicans blocked him. He has a progressive history in the IL State Senate and now, including increasing tax credits for working families.

      Your angry name-calling of the other candidates does you and your man little good. I genuinely wonder what you might do if Edwards does not win the nomination.

      make inaccurate arguments about the other candidates in order to make pro-Edwards arguments?  it reflects poorly on those who practice it and their candidate of choice, unless you have some specific info.

        Define how Hillary is not worthless. Define how Obama is not an empty suit who makes soothing promises but has disappointingly conservative views when it comes down to brass tacks?
