Edwards launches anti-corporate bombast at caucus-eve rally

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards told supporters last night to take back what he called "our democracy" from greedy corporations. Rock musician John Mellencamp's free concert helped put 3,000 people in a ballroom the night before the Iowa caucus. The former North Carolina senator gave an especially spirited version of his stump speech, tapping a vein of middle-class resentment and worry. Edwards is in a tight race with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in tonight's caucus, the first voting of the 2008 presidential election. No candidate has spent more time in Iowa than Edwards. In recent weeks, Edwards has sharpened his attacks on big oil, pharmaceutical and insurance companies. He's suggesting he would fight them far more ferociously than Obama or Clinton.

Comrade, you lost and disgraced the party. Report to the motherland immediately for punishment.

Anti-corporate bombast

Fidel Castro used to be great at that back in the Fifties. Che Guevera was pretty good too. Hugo Chavez is a master! It's true, people - the Marxists have traded in their green fatigues and berets for three-piece suits and $400 haircuts.

Edwards should attack himself when it comes to insurance.

While I am happy that we have some strong DNC candidiates this time. Edwards is not one of them. Edwards made his millions suing ob/gyn's and using junk science. He is one of the reasons why medical prices have risen and insurance has risen. Who wants to be an ob/gyn when they have to pay so much a year in insurance because of Edwards. I know that in some counties in NC ob/gyn's must pay more than $200,000.00 a year. Thanks Edwards.
