Speaking of mistakes, former Senator, candidate for Vice President and anti-poverty poster boy John Edwards is admitting he made one when he voted for the war in Iraq.
Confession is good for the soul and it’s always a pleasant surprise to see a politician admit he made a mistake. But former Senator Edwards’ contrition may deserve a second look. The political winds were blowing in one direction when he cast that vote in 2002 to go to war – and they were blowing in the opposite direction when he decided that vote was a mistake three years later. The fact is both times Mr. Edwards voted the way the wind was blowing and if you’re suspecting his latest change of heart might have something to do with polls and running for President in 2008 – you may have a point.
