Edwards says: "Bye Bye"
John Edwards is embarking on a six-stop farewell tour of North Carolina, vowing that "this fight is not over."
What fight? His wife is fighting cancer, and he said that he is concentrating on that, but that's not what he meant. He's got some battle he and Kerry were fighting, and the substance of this struggle existed only in their minds.
He blamed their loss on the icy perception of a lack of beliefs:
"The voters did not know where we stood and what we believed in," he said. "The American people need to know we are going to keep this country safe."I'll again posit that the ticket stood nowhere and believed in nothing. That is not, per se, Edwards's fault, as he had to tow Kerry's line. Kerry's line was a blank.
