BuzzFlash Awards Wings of Justice to John Edwards

A friend directed me to this weekly award from BuzzFlash:

Edwards deserves this week's BuzzFlash Wings of Justice Award, as the reader who nominated him declared, "For his daring race for the Democratic Presidential Primary 2008 riding on the themes of justice, integrity, a government of, for, and by the people, not the corporations, and for highlighting poverty in America and doing something about it, leading by example."

It was fitting of his campaign that Edwards began and ended his race for the White House in New Orleans, a city and people largely abandoned by the federal government.

Read the rest of the lovely tribute here.

Update: Catchawave from the DU tipped me to this moving video. Seems appropriate to post it here in light of the award.

I still think Edwards is a lot closer to the model of RFK than Clinton or Obama.
