People Always Love You When You’re Gone

Now Everyone Loves John
De mortuis, nihil nisi bonu, I guess

Hillary’s Statement

John Edwards ended his campaign today in the same way he started it - by standing with the people who are too often left behind and nearly always left out of our national debate.

John ran with compassion and conviction and lifted this campaign with his deep concern for the daily lives of the American people. That is what this election is about - it's about our people. And John is one of the greatest champions the American people could ask for.

I wish John and Elizabeth all the best. They have my great personal respect and gratitude. And I know they will continue to fight passionately for the country and the people they love so deeply.

and from the Other (UPDATE: I didn't know about his front page photo because I refuse to help drive up his web traffic)

John Edwards has spent a lifetime fighting to give voice to the voiceless and hope to the struggling, even when it wasn’t popular to do or covered in the news. At a time when our politics is too focused on who’s up and who’s down, he made a nation focus again on who matters – the New Orleans child without a home, the West Virginia miner without a job, the families who live in that other America that is not seen or heard or talked about by our leaders in Washington. John and Elizabeth Edwards have always believed deeply that we can change this – that two Americas can become one, and that our country can rally around this common purpose. So while his campaign may end today, the cause of their lives endures for all of us who still believe that we can achieve that dream of one America.

really if he was such an amazing person and inspiration and yada yada then why exactly where you supporting other candidates?

Grrr. So. Frustrated.

I'm done with democracy (again.)

And maybe this post wasn’t a good idea I’m way too bitter
