politics { Democratic Candidate Debate

I was not able to catch it, but saw recaps on the news. I have to admit, I was pleased with Edwards and his admittance that he made a mistake in voting for the war and that it was a mistake he would live with the rest of his life. It is not often you see politicians admit they made a mistake freely like that.

I salute you Mr. Edwards.

*Update - watch the all the chapters of the Bill Moyer journal Allthingspring posted earlier. Chapter 4 they have flash backs to 2002 and all the Senators, who would either become candidates in 2004 or 2008 (Kerry/Clinton) and listen to what they said. Yes hindsight is 20/20, but our elected officials should have done more scrutiny on the Administration, as should have MSM. Also watch KnightofNothings posting with Bill Moyers and Jon Stewart (I await the full episode for this after it airs).

Admitting you're wrong does not make you less of a leader, it shows you are human and only America's cult of machismo gives a damn, and you know what, they're a minority.

I like your writings. Thoughtful. I wish more voters would vote as you have voted.
