Too bad he'll never win

Here's what John Edwards had to say about Ronald Reagan, prompted by praise of the man from Barack Obama...

"When you think about what Ronald Reagan did to the American people, to the middle class, to the working people," Mr. Edwards said, adding that Reagan was intolerant of unions and the labor movement, he "created a tax structure that favored the very wealthiest Americans and caused the middle class and working people to struggle every single day."

"This president will never use Ronald Reagan as an example for change," Mr. Edwards added, referring to himself.

It's nice, really nice, to see somebody with some guts finally say it right out there in the political arena. But it's part and parcel of the reason why they'll never elect John Edwards. And God knows, they need to.
