Sometime short and simple is the best answer to a question. That is unless you are a Presidential candidate at a debate. There is nothing that highlights the nature of almost every candidate at this time more than this video.
Note that this is not an endorsement of John Edwards. This is also not meant to take away from Senator Hillary Clinton. This is just a comment on the nature of soundbite politics that pervade the debates and public addresses of ALL candidates at this time. Sen. Clinton just makes it more obvous in the most recent debate.
