John Edwards Explains How He Differs From Barack and Hillary (video)


Chris Matthews of MSNBC's "Hardball" asks Edwards about his "unique selling point" via YouTube (video):
Edwards insisted the post-9/11 feeling of patriotism is not completely lost and recovering that sense of unity will be a challenge for the next president.

“If you actually want America to be great, you’re going to have to step out and take some responsibility yourself and do something.”

Edwards said this perspective — the idea that it will take many Americans to solve the country’s problems — is what differentiates him from potential Democratic challengers like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who have not yet officially declared their candidacy.

I think Edwards is great but I just don't know what has changed since 2004 except that he is two years older. The more I think about the Dems in 2008, the more I think the nomination is Al Gore's to lose: he was robbed in 2000, has been consistently right on Iraq (unlike Hillary), and will not have a problem with either cash or name recognition...
