    Are you expecting, that you would get from Edwards and not from Hillary?

    •  Edwards is a more progressive candidate (0+ / 0-)

      one would expect to see more for the little guy and less for the corporations from Edwards... which is why he's not getting a lot of press.

      You can be as free as you want, so long as Republicans control birth, death, sex and marriage. And whose vote counts.

      •  How so, in practice ...? (0+ / 0-)

        What a president actually accomplishes has mostly to do with what they can push through Congress. Edwards' problem is that by campaigning as a Washington "outsider" he may Carterize himself - how can he play ball in Washington to get anything done. A president has to play hardball, but that is still playing ball.

    •  His platform on fighting poverty (1+ / 0-)

      is by far the best of any candidate. I'm poor. Edwards proposals will directly affect my life more than any other candidate. I want big, bold changes, a different outlook on foreign policy and terrorism, and Edwards as a whole gives me what I'm looking for. There are some good things in Obama and Richardson's proposals, but no one goes as far as Edwards does in regards to fighting poverty.
