  •  He made a mistake (3+ / 0-)

    and admitted it.  Which is more then I can say for another Democratic senator who is in the race.  Do you not doubt that Edwards will bring an end to this war?  

    If Iraq is going to be the issue you base your vote on (nothing wrong with that btw) then shouldn't you support the candidate who will be most likely to end it?  Maybe that still rules out Edwards but you should give him credit for being very clear about his positions.  He also ran a hell of a campaign last time around before Dems freaked at the last minute and went with someone with military credentials.

    •  So look for people who didn't make Iraq mistake (1+ / 0-)

      Again...when people start shilling Edwards in the middle of a thread on McCain and ask that we "not forget" then be prepared to be reminded that Edwards was as gung ho on Iraq as McCain and less circumspect than McCain who at least had the presence of mind to warn it would be much harder than people expected.

      Edwards was wrong on Iraq and didn't realize his "mistake" until polls showed 50% of Americans had turned against the war.

      That is something to remember about Edwards.

      •  there is more good to remember and know about (0+ / 0-)

        edwards than i can list here. so get off the kick edwards bandwagon. enough!

        •  Facts are facts. Edwards record is conservative (0+ / 0-)

          Democrat and pointing that out, as Edwards did quite vigorously during the 2004 campaign when Republicans said he was "liberal" and Edwards denied it, pointing to his conservative record on the issues, is legit.

          "so get off the kick edwards bandwagon"

          I didn't bring up Edwards in this thread so you'll need to address your comment to the Edwards supporters who did interject Edwards' record into a discussion on McCain's problems, Iraq being the main one.
