Say it ain't so John, say it ain't so
It's a cold day in Minnesota, and it's not just the weather. John Edwards has dropped out of the presidential race. This is not good for America. John Edwards had a true grasp on what ails us as a nation. He understood the plight of the Working Joe. He understood the challenges single mothers face. He knew first hand the devastation of medical hardship. He knew grief, the grief that will tear your guts into pieces and leave you broken and bleeding. He understood the need for generosity and patience. He knew better than to rely on red herrings to distract us from the hard issues. I remain a John Edwards supporter.
