I have been critical of John Edwards for some time now, although not in the very beginning. Because he started out in the Senate expressing a desire to cross party lines and cooperate to get things accomplished, I thought he might actually be a good senator. I soon learned he was not terribly interested in being a senator for North Carolina, but had his sights set on higher office. Even though I have been a critic for quite a few years now, I almost felt sorry for Edwards when reading the Time Magazine excerpt from Bob Shrum’s new book. I said almost because I was mostly just creeped out. The Time excerpt’s behind the scenes look at the campaign is pretty fascinating and makes me wonder what the rest of the book might reveal.
