John & Elizabeth Edwards Will Not Endorse
It’s official. They like and dislike things about both candidates, so they can’t decide.
“I like Hillary’s health care plan.”
What doesn’t she like […]? “The lobbyist money,” she adds.
On Obama […]: “The fact that he has motivated so many young people to be involved, I think is fantastic.”
But, she adds: “I don’t like his health care plan or his advertising on health care, which I think is misleading.”
On Clinton: “I like something different about Hillary. I think her tenacity shows a real strength that’s inside her.”
What doesn’t he like […]? “Um, still a lot of the old politics,” John Edwards said.
As for Obama […]: “Sometimes I want to see more substance under the rhetoric.”
But he cited two things he likes about the charismatic young senator from Illinois: “One is, I think he really does want to bring about serious change and a different way of doing things. And secondly, I think it’s a great symbolic thing to have an African-American who could be president.”
And there it is folks. Completely understandable and probably for the best anyway.
