Candidate Review - Fair Trade - John Edwards

It Takes a Seven Nation Army to Hold Us Back!

Sorry - just swept away by the music. Anyway John Edwards has quite a long and detailed section on Trade, which is nice. It does tie into one of his campaign themes, though, which is Two Americas. Our trade polices enrich one America while hurting the other. So he proposes "Smart Trade."
Today, John Edwards proposed "smart trade" policies: insisting on pro-worker provisions in new deals, holding trade partners to their commitments, investing more in dislocated workers and communities, and ensuring that imports are safe. He believes that the U.S. should not enter any new trade deals that do not meet these tests.
Makes a lot of sense; Trade seems to be one of Edward's strengths.
