Ending the War
Today the congress and in particular the Democrats failed to pass war funding that restored accountability and began the process of ending this war. In that they failed to represent the majority of Americans.
But one should acknowledge that presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Chris Dodd, Dennis Kucinich, and Ron Paul all voted against this bill. And John Edwards has been organizing folks to oppose this legislation. His site on this issue is worth checking.
Edwards also spoke at the Council of Foreign Relations saying "As president, I will close Guantanamo Bay, restore habeas corpus, and ban torture. Measures like these will help America once again achieve its historic moral stature". Will other candidates commit to this?
