New Video: John Edwards - You Work for Him, He'll Work for You


Watch Video: YouTube | QuickTime | Windows Media Player


EDIT: John Edwards has dropped out of the race, but this video will stay up. Why? Because now we need to make sure that John Edwards is our next Attorney General. It may not have the ring to it that Mr. President had, but it still sounds nice, Mr. Attorney General John Edwards. ;)


Photos featured in the video were taken by Jonathan Walczak, Jay Trevari, Peter Smith, Ben Strand, and George P. Stern. You can find them all here:

Ava: I will send your website address to all I know. I actually was wanting Kucinich but next to him I favor John Edwards also.

If he had bad judgment, why would his judgment be better as President? If he voted purely based on politics, on huge votes like this, would he really deliver on the progressive, anti-corporate agenda that he articulates today? Plus, this would really be exploited by the Republicans in the general election.

Examples:

1. Edwards voted for the war; now he says that was a mistake.
2. Edwards voted for the Patriot Act - now he says that was a mistake.
3. Edwards voted for the bankruptcy bill - now he says that was a mistake.
4. Edwards voted for No Child Left Behind - now he says that was a mistake.
5. Edwards voted to normalize trade relations with China - now he says that was a mistake.
6. Edwards voted to store nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain - now he says that was a mistake.

As much as I don't like the posts of JFK voting GOP in 2008, he is absolutely correct: Edwards is NOT electable!

addressed to garcia:

Why does anybody with half a brain waste their time supporting a nincompoop like Dennis Kucinch. When he garners 1% of the vote; HELLLLOOOOO!! That 1% or less should tell you something about being out of the loop when it comes to common sense but Kucinich supporters like to think of themselves as so much better thinkers than that other 99% of America.

Try to keep the name calling and hell bent bigotry to a minimum, shall we.
Homer @ Tue, 29 January 2008 10:16
Ava, I am in total agreement with you. We can not afford to elect anyone other than John Edwards. Our future depends on it!
Homer @ Tue, 29 January 2008 10:19
why must some people show their ignorance in public? Go chew some cud jersey cow. Everybody is entitiled to their opinion. Don't you have something more inportant to do besides belittling other people's choices? angry

The media and Democratic party were both guilty of keeping the points that Kucinich was trying to make out of the public knowledge.
Out of respect, fourth place qualifies for part of any debate but he was excluded.
He was making knowledge to the people of things both parties do not want opened up. WHY?
You are right that Edwards did some of these things. What I keep remembering though is the fact that the Democrats were so deliberately kept out of the world of any information or very reduced versions. With deliberately doing this by the criminals in Washington and ALL Republicans going along with it, they were forced to decisions with little or no information. Remember the propaganda making anyone even asking questions "against us" mentality. Kucinich voted against it and I think Obama also.
With that said, I still like the fact that Edwards is trying to show the deliberate "extermination" of the middle class amd poor and working for a good change to this medical system. "Jersey Cow". please use respect or you will receive what you give.
garcia @ Wed, 30 January 2008 10:37
I just went back and noticed "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND". Along with all the other things, this makes me see red.
What a scam this is. George and Barbara Bush own the operation. The youngest son runs it. All schools "ARE FORCED" to buy the books and curriculum through the company they own.
Any one else would be going to prison for this illegal scam.
Our children keep falling further and further behind other countries.
What a joke this country has become due to these criminals.
Hopefully, more people than just Kucinich want to prosecute these criminals.
Alan Charles @ Wed, 30 January 2008 10:46
Perhaps jersey cow will be glad to know Edwards is dropping out.

Now she'll have to find someone else to complain about.
Alan Charles @ Thu, 31 January 2008 11:55
Attagirl, Ava! I just read your EDIT and agree the video should stay up.
I'm noticing what seems to be a lot of grief on the web this morning
over John's decision to withdraw from the presidential campaign.
I think a lot of people are gonna miss what he stood for, but
now that he's gone, we must move forward to ensure that
whoever the Democratic nominee is, we support them.
ydd @ Thu, 31 January 2008 12:46
I still hope for a team of rivals in the whitehouse. All Democrats of course.
Alan Charles @ Fri, 01 February 2008 09:55
Since this is still an anti-war website, I'd like to turn our attention to
this piece on Daily Kos addressing Mr. Bush's "surge" in Iraq now.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/2/1/8538/97457/996/447503
While the media seems to have forgotten the war even exists,
our brave men and women are still bogged down there and
not many seem to care about them any more except for
those of us on sites like this ~ and their families.

Anyone have any suggestions?
Alan Charles @ Fri, 01 February 2008 03:30
Just another example of how this administration treats its veterans
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=18492376
We simply must find a way to put an end to this madness.

Anyone have any suggestions?

While Mr-100-more-years-in-Iraq-McCain seems to be leading Republican candidates
after numerous people on the religious right and talk radio hosts continue attacking him,
Mrs-I'm-not-sorry-for-my-Iraq-vote-Clinton seems to be heading toward the nomination of
the Democratic party.While all this is going on, has anyone reading this heard anything
about what's going on in Iraq? All I could find yesterday was news of Britney's release
from her stay in the hospital. I suppose the media has already chosen our candidates
and there is no need for us to be made aware that our troops still aren't receiving the
best equipment available nor the best care available once they return to America.

I have noticed it for awhile regarding the media.
I swear, I do think that there must be something in our water system that makes so many people have the memory retention of a piece of string.
The lives of the Iraqi, Afganistani and troops from other countries and of course our own in constant jeopardy and it seems that the media thinks that this is old news.
I did hear, however, of an attack by our troops. Bullet holes riddled in mattresses where men, women, and children slept. This was another one of those things not spoken of.
You can see on the face of McCain that this guy is not skrewed on tight.
I think that if the nomination goes down to the special delegates, you may be correct about Clinton. Otherwise, there is a good fight for the nomination by Obama.
Hopefully, there a many more people such as you and I that are noticing the same coverup of information by the media.
Alan Charles @ Thu, 07 February 2008 04:20
It makes you wonder, doesn't it garcia? It's as if everyone is more concerned about "winning"
than what might be good for America. We have had candidates who were more "qualified"
but Americans seemed to collectively dismiss them as "not electable." I wonder why.

It fascinates me how the media has made the war in the middle east "disappear,"
not only from our television screens, but from our everyday conversations.
I don't know if people are tired of hearing about it nor just don't care.

The sad part is our troops will continue to be ignored until the general election,
when the candidates from both parties will start trotting them out and telling us how
they support the troops and if we support them, we should want those wars to continue,
then shortly after they are elected, we will once more hear nothing more about those wars.

We can point our fingers all day long at what we think is causing all this, but in the end,
we will always have three fingers pointing back towards ourselves. Kilroy said it well:

"we have met the enemy and he is us."
Alan Charles @ Sat, 16 February 2008 06:00
As the news media continues to ignore the war in Iraq,
it seems that somehow or other the "drawdown" of troops
has now turned into additional troops by summer this year.

http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/news/news-iraq-usa-troops.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

It seems the only people having to do any "sacrificing" are the troops
and their families. It's how the Republicans seem to "support the troops."

We simply must do all we can to ensure a Democrat in the White House
in order to at least try to put an end to this senseless war sometime soon.
garcia @ Tue, 19 February 2008 08:07
I am so disgusted with the media. I don't even consider watching any of the Sunday morning or weekday evening news shows. For every Democrat there are four Republicans or no Democrat at all on the shows.
There is less and less spoken of the troops.
This government has ruined us financially and we will be paying for this disaster well into other generations.
People are losing homes, jobs and savings. The government knows what they have done to the citizens and know that people are in dire financial shape. Now they come up with an idea to give $40,000 to each person that enlists. They will get this after completion of their duty. I am sure that the government is basing this on the high probability of these people never coming back.
We are a very replaceable entity to these criminals.
alancharles @ Tue, 19 February 2008 01:40
I agree with everything you've written above, garcia.
If people want to know why so many of us old veterans are angry,
they need look no further than the way our government treats its veterans.
Once upon a time, our government promised free lifetime medical care to veterans.
When Mr. Bush took office, that was cut back to five years for Desert Storm veterans
and is currently down to two years for Afghanistan and Iraq veterans. Support the troops
is just the administration's way of telling Americans to support Mr. Bush's wars there and
has absolutely nothing at all to do with actually supporting them in any meaningful way.

As the presidential campaign heats up, we hear less and less about Iraq.
This article at http://www.tomdispatch.com/post/174896 sheds light on why.
garcia @ Wed, 20 February 2008 11:42
What is this about the Supreme Court not being able to come up with a decision about FISA and spying on our own citizens. How can they look at themselves in the mirror. It is against everything that this country is based on. If they are not paid off stooges than it sould be quite easy to see the criminals against the law tactics.
Alan Charles @ Wed, 20 February 2008 08:10
Nothing this administration or the Supreme Court does surprises me any more, garcia.

Each time I read one of these stories about what our veterans have to go through
to get any kind of benefits out of our government after having served honorably,
I wish there was something more I could do than just write letters to editors.
