According to at least one poll, the number saying we should never have gone into Iraq hit a high in Oct. 2005, a month before Edwards op-ed. I'm not sure what Edwards saw in Nov. 2005, that wasnt obviously in 2003 and 2004, when he was still supporting the war.
he voted for the Bankruptcy Bill in 2001, he has since changed his mind, and apologized for that. He had constantly used the term "WOT" in the past, but apparently, now, he is against it(he even recently had it on his website, but it was changed). In 2003, he said we are safer now, apparently now, he doesnt think so. Those are the ones off the top of my head. And why would you assume there wouldbe be a reply?
Edwards record. He supported the war in 2002, 2003, and 2004. Edwards has stuck his finger in the wind on Iraq, supporting the war when it was popular to do so, and only shifting his position when the public opinion was shifting. That's not leadership, IMO.
SS privatization though. Sure, you can worry about him hiring someone like Liebman, but Obama himself has never expressed a desire for privatization and did not support it in 2005 when Bush was pushing the issue. And I think that's what your friend means by "he's one of us". In action, he has been very liberal.
well, Russ Feingold has voted for funding the war(he voted for the 87 billi0n dollars that Kerry and Edward voted against), and I dont think that means he endorses the war. Edwards seems like two different people as well. For example, there is the Edwards that cosponsored the war resolution and there iss the Edwards that is now against the war.
According to a Bloomberg poll from less than a week ago, Obama is the strongest Dem in the field, beating all GOP candidates. Does this mean the Bloomberg poll is accurate, and Rasmussen is not? No, it just means we can cherrypick polls all day long. :).
Those checks count for the first quarter but they might not have tallied them up. That party had 20 checks, but even if the average number was, like, five, then that's still 25,000 checks they need to tally up.
So, if I'm reading that right, Mitchell thinks Obama raised 25 million, for the primary alone. Meaning his total haul for the quarter, including what was set a side for the general, is even bigger. Hmm, I find that hard to believe, although I think he did well.
This is why I favor Obama right now. He is the only viable candidate who opposed the war from the beginning. That completely changes the tone of the campaign, and the discussion about the candidates and Iraq. While an apology is better than Clinton's current waffling, both will be used as targets for the GOP, as we see in the RNC press release.
