I think the Senator did a very good job of coming across as a real person instead of just a packaged politician. I could have done without the “Bush and his Gang” comment, though. I loved the Patriot Act discussion, too, when John Edwards (just like nearly everyone else in the Senate) voted for it. I totally disagreed with Brian Livingston’s comments, too. If I had had a tin-foil hat handy, I would have given him one when he said the Bush Administration cared only about finding information on their political opponents. I dearly loved his concept of chasing terrorists with court orders. And while I generally support his idea of giving more information, there are very real national security secrets that just should not be revealed. In the end, I think John Edwards did a much better job of staying on topic than some of the questioners did.
