John Edwards

Is also a handsome man. I'm straight (and just a little bit homophobic), by the way, in case anybody is wondering.

What is the best and fastest way to get out of Iraq is the first question. He says that MoveOn has shifted the debate from if we should get out but when should we get out. Congress should use it's funding authority to end the war. He wants to get all combat troops out of Iraq in about a year.

He said we shouldn't be worried about keeping Joe Lieberman happy - interesting line. Particularly because if Joe bolts, the Senate goes back to the Republicans.

Second Question is on war profiteering. Gives Edwards a chance to go off on Haliburton and no bid contracts. Which in fairness, are two awful things.

Third question is on Murtha's proposal to force troops going to Iraq to meet real readiness requirements. John Edwards is in favor of it; which makes sense. It will make it harder to get more troops into Iraq.

His final speech is on how Congress needs to stand firm against this President. Silence is a betrayal; we need to use our voice to argue in favor of immediate action to end this war. He thinks people who participate in MoveOn are great. And I can't speak for anybody else, but I am. When I've bathed.
