While watching the South Carolina debates on CNN last night, and watching Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama do the “Nuh-HUH! Nuh-UH!” version of political debating, I turned to my husband and said:

“It looks like John Edwards is the only grown-up on that stage.”

Looks like John Edwards felt the same way.

During the debate Edwards said:

“I was thinking I’m John Edwards and I represent the ‘grown-up wing’ in the Democratic Party. … [I]n times like this we need a grown-up.”

Indeed we do, John.
