In an era of tremendous gains by the extremely wealthy alongside pretty much flat gains by poorer workers, Edwards call for a repeal of Shrub's tax-relief for the wealthy makes perfect sense. It's interesting to see even so-called left-leaning papers like the L.A. Times describe Edwards' platform as risky and radical. Edwards, we are told, would face anger by the maligned constituency. Who are we talking about? People who make more than 3 or 4 million a year and own islands in the Bahamas? There must be more of these people than I imagined. Or at least more of them that own newspapers.
