Very Moving Video - Edwards Responds to Health Care Question

Not cross-posted at my new location, Ohio Daily Blog, because my #%&!@ server is down right now:

I have to post this short video clip, placed on YouTube by the campaign of former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC), because I found it so incredibly moving:

The right wing noise machine, more afraid of Edwards than of Clinton or Obama, has been very carefully planting the impression in the public mind that Edwards, who is wealthy, is hypocritical and out of touch with the problems of lower-income Americans. It is in unrehearsed moments like this, however, when you can see for yourself that he unmistakably gets it. He not only empathizess with and understands the plight of the impoverished and of the struggling middle class, he is appropriately outraged by this fiasco of a health system that we have.

And, not an insignificant point, Elizabeth Edwards is terrific.
