the problem with John Edwards

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI):

"The candidate who is the most problematic is [John]
Edwards, who voted for the Patriot Act, campaigns
against it. Voted for No Child Left Behind, campaigns
against it. Voted for the China trade deal, campaigns
against it. Voted for the Iraq war … He uses my voting
record exactly as his platform, even though he had the
opposite voting record. When you had the opportunity
to vote a certain way in the Senate and you didn't,
and obviously there are times when you make a mistake,
the notion that you sort of vote one way when you're
playing the game in Washington and another way when
you're running for president, there's some of that
going on."

from the New Yorker magazine:

Sen. Hillary Clinton told a New Hampshire audience
that if Obama were elected, Al Qaeda would strike
America to test him. "I don't think it was by
accident that Al Qaeda decided to test the new Prime
Minister," she said, of the attempts in Great Britain
to plant bombs after Gordon Brown succeeded Tony Blair.
