Much as I want to give my unreserved support to Howard Dean for the Democratic presidential nomination, John Edwards’ campaign message (as described by William Saletan) is really very appealing to me. I’ve always told people that I opposed cutting capital gains taxes because I feel like people who work for their money should not be taxed at a higher rate than those who invest for their money, and Edwards is taking that idea and really turning it into something powerful. I also think that the fact that Edwards was a trial lawyer is incredible bait that could drag Bush into a real quagmire during the campaign.
