    Sen. John Edwards shows the imperative that he will be able to restore America's Moral Leadership in the international community...

    Wow, did Obama really say yes to that?!?! He is really showing his rooky mistakes.

    I beg to differ, Mountain Man.

    Meeting with political leaders doesn't necessarily mean he's caving to them. Who says every candidate has to say they will do exactly what Bush is doing (which is giving nations the silent treatment while they go along their merry way with whatever plans they want).

    If we had a president who was willing to talk to those leaders, we might not be in the mess we're in in Iraq. Of course, you do the work ahead of time to make sure it isn't a propaganda coup, as Hillary said, but that is a given. If we would talk to some of these jokers they might actually see the error of their ways! To refuse to talk to them is idiocy, it just makes matters worse.

    CNN is doing all it can with it's production team to not allow Sen. Obama to settle in his talking. Meaning... he is not shown as he begins talking and wide angles are used when he finishes one. Anyone into media, editors, producers need to stepm up and analyze the way CNN covers candidates. If I wanted manipulation I'd watch FOX 24 hour lies. CNN you can do better and so can we at holding you accountable.
