Edwards: Iowa victory would erase his money gap for the long haul

DENISON, Iowa (AP) -- John Edwards is predicting that a win in Iowa would help him close the financial gap between his campaign and those of Democratic rivals Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Edwards says he's confident heading into Thursday's caucuses. In an interview on NBC's "Today" show this morning, Edwards noted "energy and momentum" in the state. He calls it a "reality" that an Iowa victory will give him "plenty of money" to run his campaign. The former North Carolina senator can't dip into his personal fortune because he's using public campaign financing. So far, he's raised far less cash than Clinton or Obama.

So John Edwards is not spending any of his own money. That is not what politicians like to do. They had much rather spend somebody else's money.
If he loses, will that erase him from the public eye? All I wanted for Christmas was a bus wreck between him and hildabeast.
...just how many people will fall for this man's promises. If the Democratic party is stupid enough to select this nut for their nominee, they deserve four more years of Republican rule. Let's face it - no one is enamored with the incompetence of the current administration, but if we waived the Twenty-second Amendment and let Bush run again, HE could defeat Comrade Edwards. When a man talks about the government controlling production and redistributing wealth to end poverty, and can still be a leading contender for the presidential nomination of a major political party, be afraid. Be very afraid. The Marxists are now wearing Palm Beach suits and sporting $400 haircuts.
