Edwards Doesn't Want Your Vote

At least if you watch the Fox News Channel. John Edwards will simply not tolerate any group that will not tow the liberal line.

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards won't participate in a debate co-hosted by Fox News and the Nevada Democratic Party, his campaign said, as party officials tried to settle a dustup over their partnership with the cable network.

Edwards' campaign said the involvement of Fox News, which is often accused by liberals of having a conservative bias, was part of the decision to pass on the Aug. 14 debate in Reno.

"There were a number of factors and Fox was one of those."

Far-left blogs have been pushing for this,and Edwards has caved. The Left has set yet another lower standard. Unless you can name a Republican that has ever skipped a major debate based solely on the slant of the network carrying it. That may be difficult, even considering, for example, CBS's "myopic zeal" against Republicans. Edwards will take his ball and go home unless you're slanted his way.

This says as much about the media as it does about Edwards. He knows the networks who are in bed with him, and you don't get access if you aren't. Oh, that liberal media.

Trackback Pings


Pandering to the left wing blogs really worked for Edwards last month, why not continue the downward spiral?

Who's running his campaign, anyway? Dukakis, et al?

I think he's trying to stake his claim where he sees the left blogosphere looking for someone to take up their cause. To me, it looks like he's trying to get the blessing of the Kos kids and surf the free publicity they'll give him.

But as you said, he may become endeared to them, but it'll turn off a big majority of everyone else.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that he needs the nomination first. If he gets it (and some think he will), then he goes centrist faster than you can say "Hillary the centrist".

Well, with the longer campaign season this time around, his leftist creds may be too well entrenched with the public at large by the time the primaries are over that he may have a tough time moving to the center.

The same could be said for any Republican candidate. Gonna be interesting.
