Thank you, Kate Zernike

Thank you for writing an article about John and Elizabeth Edwards that mentions neither haircuts nor houses nor hedge funds. Thank you for writing an article that doesn't even allude to the kind of foul rumors that those afraid of having a president who might represent people other than the most monied interests have spread. Thank you for recognizing that there are still people for whom politics is a calling, a way to make a difference on a large scale, rather than a way to stuff one's pockets or aggrandize one's ego.

John Edwards has received precious little coverage like this, and rarely been covered with this little skepticism.

This is one of those times when I wish I'd been able to put away more money when I was young and could afford to retire. I'd be in Iowa right now.
