John Edwards for President
I ran across the below article and realized that nobody really seemed to talk about this. This is your chance to vent or just give you two cents. God, I liked his stances on so many things, but this was just plain old stupid. I usually like to think that someones private life is their own business, but now I realize that many of the important things he spoke about, the two Americans the most important, will now get even less attention because it is connected with him. What are your thoughts? Is there anybody still in this community?|

As Democrats kick off their convention Monday, the onetime presidential contender is a man without a party - or a political future - trying to rebuild bridges through dozens of remorseful phone calls.
It's proving a hard sell with onetime true believers.
