The women are out, but Edwards is the loser

Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan have both resigned from the John Edwards campaign. The women may be out, but Edwards is the big loser.

The pressure placed on Edwards by Bill Donahue and other conservatives is NOTHING compared to the pressure that he would face as president. If he can't stand up to these domestic terrorists, how would he fair against international terrorists?

Sure, you might say that Edwards didn't cave, he didn't fire them -- but that would be untrue. He DID cave, by waiting DAYS to announce that he would not fire the two women. By waiting he sent a message that he was CONSIDERING letting these two women go. He let them twist in the wind far too long before finally saying something.

Edwards was already on shaky ground with me over his position on marriage equality. I'm not sure if it's possible for him to dig his way out of this hole.

Is it any wonder why Democrats get the reputation of being wimps? Cheney would have told the professionally offended to go F-- himself and that would have been the end of it.
I'm hoping this will teach Edwards to grow some larger testicles. He'll need them in the future.

I absolutely agree!

Right-on BAC. Looks like we both are on the same path in re: JE.

Tengrain, I've been trying to leave comments on your blog, but they don't seem to show up. And then when I try again, I get a message that says it's a duplicate message. Any idea what's happening?
