  •  So why not step up and say "F YOU, Fox... (3+ / 0-)

    I'm not participating in your little debate?"  Why was he so afraid to do that.  I still haven't heard one good explanation for why he ceded leadership on this to Edwards.

    •  Didn't Edwards cite a scheduling problem (0+ / 0-)

      rather than telling FUX to FUX itself?

      •  No. Not true. (0+ / 0-)

        Edwards said he would not be going.

        He acted by choosing not to appear.  Talk is cheap.

        •  This didn't exactly seem like an f-bomb to FUX (1+ / 0-)

          Looking ack on it, it was a carefully worded and non-confrontational "no."

          There's no need to read anything else into it, and cast any insult on Obama for not doing more. Obama and Edwards know how to be careful, but because we don't have to be, there's no need to make shit up.

          "We will not be participating in the Fox debate," said Jonathan Prince, Edwards’ deputy campaign manager, told The Daily Kos.

          "We're going to make lots of appearances in Nevada, including debates," he said. "By the end of March, we will have attended three presidential forums in Nevada - and there are already at least three proposed Nevada debates. We're definitely going to debate in Nevada, but we don't see why this needs to be one of them."

            You can try to explain it away or say Edwards failed to throw an F-Bomb, but the bottom line was that Obama did nothing when he should have led.

            I saw this in Obama in January and it is one reason why I chose Edwards over Obama.  Obama is not a leader yet.
