Funny Edward's quote: "I represent the grown-up wing of the Democratic Party"

John Edwards said yesterday:

"While Senator Clinton and Senator Obama were hurling charges and countercharges at each other, I was thinking, `I'm John Edwards and I represent the grown-up wing of the Democratic Party."

Yes I know it is off topic, but I thought it was funny. I wish RP would say something like that.

I don't know a lot about John Edwards

But from just listening to the sound bites, I don't know why he is not considered a "top-tier democrat." He seems to exude the populist/socialist ideas that democrats love. Oh well, I guess we'll just have to beat either Obama or Clinton.

rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him." --Thomas Jefferson

I see your point

but I think the humor is specifically refering to the debate and the level of the back and forth between Hill-Bill-y and Obama.

Edwards enabled Obama's Iowa win, by taking Hillary down a few notches. I think he is an example of why it is good not to narrow the field too early.

I agree with you though that Edwards is the candidate that is the polar opposite of RP. The democrats are reaping what they deserve right now. They play identity politics (ie race, gender) against republicans all the time, and now that it is happening in their own house they are starting to see how ridiculous and harmful it is to turn groups against each other. Edwards represents a different kind of deviciveness as well, he wants to add an economics/class division to the race as well, at least that fell flat so far.

I guess gun-grabbing socialism is grown-up?

John Edwards has made a career out of being a smooth, glib, polished, manipulator of people. He has made a fortune by preying on people's vices: envy, vindictiveness, prejudice, and false philanthropy. He is a very dangerous man peddling the world's most destructive and inhumane political philosophy. He is, in my opinion, Ron Paul's most difficult opponent, should he get the democratic nomination.

There is nothing funny about John Edwards. John Edwards=slavery.

Sorry to be the wet blanket.
