Cheers for Edwards

Well, John Edwards has just become my second choice after Dean for the nomination with this commitment against Democratic infighting:

Mr. Edwards, who has steadfastly refused to join the criticism of Dr. Dean, said the attacks and counterattacks among the nine Democrats seeking the party's presidential nomination were turning off voters.

"If you are a voter here in New Hampshire or if you're a caucus-goer in Iowa or in one of these early primary states, you can barely turn your television on or open your mailbox without seeing one candidate criticize another," Mr. Edwards said in a speech to the Nashua Chamber of Commerce. "It's about what so-and-so said yesterday or what so-and-so candidate said seven years ago. I've seen attack ads about Iraq, I've seen attack ads about Medicare, and most recently I have seen attack ads about attack ads."

Edwards has great policy positions and this comment shows he has his eye on the ball, defeating George W. Bush.
