Edwards: A Throwback for the Future

As polarizing as Hillary is, I’ve long felt that the weakest nominee the Democrats could put up is John Edwards. That’s because the current version of Edwards, in his new post-DLC, progressive guise, supports the kind of policies that led liberalism to fall into disrepute in the first place.

The subtext of his “Two Americas” shtick has always been redistributionism and a return to welfare as we knew it before the mid-1990s. Now among his ideas for diversifying inner-city schools, as described in a Politico story, is something that sounds awfully close to forced busing. The rest of it is reminiscent of the well meaning but ineffectual nostrums of the Great Society. I’m not sure the country has moved that far to the left.
