I’d be curious to hear what people think of John Edwards. He’s been making news all over the progressive blogosphere for his recent attack on corporate Democrats and the excesses of corporate power. Edwards’ own comment, ‘You can’t make a pig fatter by weighing him’ in regard to testing in education, may apply in a way to his own candidacy. Can this pig (apologies to Edwards) be weighed? And if found to be a true liberal democrat, who supports economic reforms and limits on corporate power- would an Edwards/Kucinich ticket be viable?
I say this with the caveat that I disagree with Edwards on many issues, but I understand how ruthless national politics is, and that it will take a lot more than one election to muzzle the national military/imperial/industrial complex.

Also, I apologize for talking about an election that is more than a year away, and one in which the media has rushed to annoint the front runners a year and a half ahead.
