Another debate

Not surprising to see John Edwards biting back after the Democrats' debate on Fox. Naughty Howard Dean to suggest that he was the only contender addressing white people on the issue of race. Mistaken assumption. I have listened to Edwards at several events now and at each he has made a point of talking about growing up with segregation and how repugnant he found it. I noticed John Kerry also took up the race cause in his speech - and I don't think he ever misses a chance to say he marched with Martin Luther King.
Of course in Dean's defence one has to realise that these blokes don't go to each other's campaign events - so they can't hear what they are telling groups large and small around the land.
