While I’ve accepted the fact that my dream presidential ticket of Edwards/Edwards will probably never come to pass (and it doesn’t matter to me which one is the Presidential candidate and which one goes for V.P), I’m ecstatic that the sensible, practical voice of Elizabeth Edwards is still part of the 2008 campaign.
While she is working on health care policy issues over at the Center for American Progress, taking the Republicans to task, she’s also got her eye on the media’s continued lackluster, ADD-type coverage of the campaign at the New York Times.
Nobody gets a free pass when Elizabeth is watching. And I like that. Maybe if more of us took her approach to putting out voices and opinions out there, and we weren’t afraid of political confrontation, we’d be more effective for the causes that matter to us, not matter what they are and no matter what our political affiliation.
Now that’s the stuff that dreams are made of!
