For the record: in relation to John Edwards

I saw him at the first "Take Back America" conference, which had a really interesting social democratic type program put together by Economic Policy Institute guy Robert Borosage by the way, and he came off as being the best of the crowd, which included Kucinich, largely because of what other bloggers have noted: a real consideration of labor rights and a real eye towards addressing poverty. I still entered the Kucinich campaign as an entryist, not for anyone but myself, in the hope of turning the local Kucinich branch into an extremely pro-labor pseudo-socialist organization, but was stopped due to the fact that people were more new agey and generally not concerned at all with economic justice. This can't be said for the entire campaign, but in this case it was true.

I don't support any Democratic candidate for president, but out of those running Edwards is probably the best.
