Our heart loves John Edwards' politics.
And, the former U.S. senator from NORTH Carolina has been more forthcoming than either Clinton or Obama in laying out specific policy details.
But the answer he gave in Keene, NH today on ending the Iraq conflict still stinks.
If you think the war is lost then advocate CUTTING OFF THE TROOP FUNDING (we personally do not think the war is lost so we support the troop surge).
That's all there is to it. The only people who believe there is a 3rd way forward in Iraq are Washington politicians.
And, if you act in good faith (and not because of which way the political wind is blowing) we don't believe cutting the funding makes you soft on national security.
Which is why we like Dennis Kucinich so much.
But we are still sweet on Edwards. Even if his Iraq answer needs a little work.
