Actually, I like Edwards OK. Most of his trial work had to do with some really sad medical malpractice cases. Having worked on some medmal cases myself as a consultant, I know that there are definitely some not-frivolous lawsuits out there. Looking at some of his cases, I didn't think they were frivolous. But, should he get so wealthy while helping "the little guy"? If trial lawyers are so preoccupied with getting results for the little guy as they say they are, why not work pro bono or for only 5% of awards instead of the typical 33% to 50%? Well, they don't because what they are really running is a business, not a charity. Voting Democratic helps their business. That's really why they support Kerry-Edwards -- it's good for business. It's not really that much different from what the Republicans do. It's just a different business. Anyway, IMHO, the Democrats would have been better off picking John Edwards as the presidential candidate and someone else as the VP. John Kerry is the greatest liability to their ticket. Scratch that -- John Kerry's WIFE is the greatest liability to their ticket.
