John Edwards

I can’t top Melissa McEwan’s tribute to John Edwards as he leaves the race, so I’ll just say that I hope that the essence of what he made his mission — helping the voiceless find their voice and fighting the causes and effects of poverty — will continue. The true test is that he keeps on going even if the goal isn’t to win the White House. I think he’s the kind of person that will do that, and he has my full support in that effort.

John Edwards may never be president, but I think the country is better off for his making the attempt.
