I concur. During the New Hampshire primaries, MSNBC did not mention Edwards ONCE.

Edwards is a very realistic candidate, and he has NO negatives. Either the one’s we speak openly about or those that we pretend are not there.

W. got elected twice. TWICE! So much for voters doing their homework.

W has never been elected ever! In 2000 he was put into the white house by the supreme court stopping the count; in 2004 he was put into office by the state of Ohio due to the improper count of the ballots. he was a failure at anything he undertook in private life & he has definitely been a failure in the 8 years he has occupied the residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

LOL!!! Hysterical. Greatest piece of fiction I've read since Twain.

You are so transparent. you have to make these posts in a very dark room since you could never in a million years still be defending Bush in person. Even the right wing freaks on Fox are distancing themselves from GWB that disaster of a president. So you keep typing your nonsense in the dark anonymous reaches of the internet. I hear if you type it enough times it becomes true.

No matter how hateful you are, by calling me a lying pig, I don't hold it against you. I am a better person than that. In all honesty, you are angry because you know that george bush is the worst president that ever was put into the white house. You are a republican & you cannot admit what a failure this man is. You truly don't like him either. You know the damage he has done & you still support him & I understand. I would probably do the same. Don't be so hateful.

Excellent commentary. Another example of how the media is complicit in stifling and muzzling democracy. Maybe the reason they didn't list Mike Gravel's and Dennis Kucinich's positions on "the issues" is because they know that most people would agree with their thoughtful and sensible positions on things. We can't have any of THAT! Not when the "top-tier" candidates have already signed off on agreeing to continue the status quo if elected.

All considered, should we really be surprised? It's all part of the crooked political game.
