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.”
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.
