Edwards Puts His Money Where His Mouth Is
Specifically, the money he'll be paying his campaign manager.
John Edwards has chosen David Bonior to lead his presidential campaign. You can't get much more progressive and populist than David Bonior. He's an aggressive campaigner and a strong believer in the grassroots.
Just as important is what Bonior isn't: He is not now and has never been an inside-the-Beltway consultant.
I'm really liking Edwards more and more. He seems to have grown a bit since 2003-4, without growing cowardly.
And David BONIOR. Hot damn. Edwards might as well make his campaign slogan, "I'm a liberal -- if you don't like it, too bad!"
Ripper, my heart is with Al Gore. He won in 2000 in spite of everything the media did to ruin him, and he's shown that he learned a lot from the experience of having it stolen from him.
