Edwards should apologize for the actions of his overzealous aides.

    Don’t let this destroy your confidence in the ethics of American plaintiff’s attorneys. What’s next, a preemptive “SLAPP” suit? Can you imagine how arrogant he would be if he actually got elected? Ugh, what a creep.

    Interesting that the Edwards campaign worker states that the Headquarters is based outside of Washington, DC because it shows his commitment to the people outside of DC. Then when he is asked about the affluent neighbor-hood, he states that it does not matter where the Headquarters is located. Ah, but he is young and I am being rational…
