John Edwards on Real Time with Bill Maher

JRE was on Bill Maher's show last night. It was pretty funny and the rapport between them was very warm. I liked it how Maher asked him what it was like to live in Iowa (and NH, JRE added), and it must be like the longest business trip of his life.

Elizabeth was with John, and there were some jokes about the campaign being romantic--Not! LOL

I cannot get the video to embed properly, so I'm providing a link, courtesy of Blue NC.

Real Time with Bill Maher

It's a little over 11 minutes long. Enjoy!

John Edwards Live at the WaPO

Check it out.

Update: turns out they only took questions from NH and Iowa voters. Same questions I've seen over and over, but I guess the voters there don't get on the Net very often and see what JRE has said.

SEIU's Most Promised Land Candidate: John Edwards

JRE got ten endorsements from 10 chapters of the SEIU in the past 2 days. Means a lot, but at least they (the leaders) recognize that he had walked in more picket lines for them, campaigned in 6 states to raise the minimum wage, and they knew him to be a Mill/Postal Worker's Son.

Let's count them: IA, CA, WA, WVA, OH, ID, MT, OR, MI, MN

John Deeth liveblogged the Iowa endorsement. Here's the video of Bruce Springsteen's song "The Promised Land" , in which the music was played at the event. Springsteen is JRE's favorite artist.

Ten, count 'em 10 endorsements by the SEIU and more than half the membership across the country.

Great Monday for JRE and his supporters; hope it translates into knocking on doors and votes!

Cowboys Got their Saddles Taken Away by NE

Ugly: 3 touchdowns.

What happened Tony?

Only consolation is that the Redskins lost today as well.

Video for Your Watching/Listening Reflection

Pioneer at Daily Kos posted this video, entitled "The Face of God." I am not a religious person, but this video resonated with me, given all of our troubles in the world, and especially those who need us when they have no defense against the weather, the governments, or bullies. Animals and their place in our lives in this video are illustrations of Jefferson's, Emerson's and Thoreau's deist worldview.

It's by Karen Drucker, I believe.
