Cyclone Conservatives: John Edwards in the Land of Ice Cream
Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives
I saw Edwards in December of 2003 when he made a campaign stop in Primghar, IA. I would have to say that the Edwards of 2007 is nothing like the Edwards of 2003. In 2003, he maybe could have passed, once in awhile, for the 'moderate' title he got then from the media. Now, there is absolutely nothing 'moderate' about him. He's perhaps the most liberal 'credible' candidate in the group. Perhaps only Gravel and Kucinich are more out there (but they really aren't even credible). ... Edwards would ultimately like the government to become nearly, if not all, involved in health care and energy issues. He said that America produces one of the worst health care products in the world. When he produces these sorts of incredible statements, you obviously have to first wonder what box he has been living in, and then wonder if he really thinks America is a third world country. Last I checked, there are thousands of people trying to get into this country for operations because they aren't getting the kind of care from their rationed government run bureaucratic mess of a health care system.
