The Werewolf and the Mill Worker

Neil was invited to see John Edwards speak and participate in a Q&A with him. He asked about health care.

Sniff. I've taught him well.

Anyway, he's got impressions from the speech, Edwards' answer on health care, and more over at his place. Go!

Edwards shouldn't have accepted the VP slot. He'd be in a better position to be nominated for 2008. I'm a moderate Republican, yet I'm a huge fan of Edwards. And I hope he has a chance for 2008. Though I'll also take Evan Bayh, Joe Biden, or Wesley Clark.

There's pics of Neil with Edwards here (third picture, far right)

Wish I hadn't blinked in the picture. Oh well. At least I'm smiling.

I am indeed a well-taught werewolf. Thanks, Ezra.

Words not speakable by Dem. politicians (yet): single-payer universal health insurance. Note that Edwards only would speak to the truncated version, below.

Even the truncated version - universal health insurance - is a 'someday' objective.

The big bad wolf (not the ethical werewolf) of insurance companies and their siblings - the evil bad wolf - the drug industry will eat you up if you speak those words as positive policy proposal for the near term (or even, long term).

I guess it will take the near total breakdown of the current system before we can begin to do more than whisper those words loud enough for the wolves to hear.

An issue sure to be hotly disputed would tend to remove doubts about Dems as " wishy-washy, can't get off their ass to represent the interests of the constituency". You can't make a statement and go by spin doctrine at the same time.
