First it was $400 dollar haircuts and now we find out that John Edwards charged college students at UC Davis $55,000 to give a speech about poverty. These blunders can't be blamed on other people. John Edwards is responsible for who cuts his hair and how much he charges to give speeches because these are personal decisions, not campaign decisions. This is becoming a trend for John Edwards. He seems to be telling America to "do as I say, not as I do." He has no credibility on one his biggest campaign issues: poverty and the existence of "two Americas."
John Edwards is proof that there actually are two Americas. There is one America for people that get paid $55,000 for one speech and can afford $400 haircuts. The other America is for the rest of us.
Reasons NOT to vote for John Edwards
John Edwards would be a bad President. This judgment is based on my personal assessment of his leadership abilities and his policies. There are many logical reasons not to vote for John Edwards which I will explore on this blog. I hope that you join me in this important discussion by posting comments and sending me your "reasons" at firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to maintain the integrity of an intellectual discussion, there are two rules that will govern all content on this blog: 1. personal attacks will not be tolerated and 2. every "reason" must be factual and must cite sources.
