Edwards loses my vote

John Edwards has now stated on two occasions, once in a townhall meeting and once on one of the morning talk shows, that he will place spending priorities above deficit reduction. For me, this is a dealbreaker. I was willing to forgive the class rhetoric. I was willing to forgive the protectionism. I was even willing to forgive the business-bashing. All because the guy was just so darn nice and intelligent and seemed like a uniter despite his divisive rhetoric. But any politician that wants to spend a future generation's money is not going to get my vote.

Edwards' platform is looking way too much like LBJ's for comfort.

Oh, and two posts in one day! When was the last time that happened?
