By Robert Scheer
Thank you, Ann Coulter, for boosting the principled but media-neglected presidential candidacy of John Edwards.
Like many others, upon hearing that she had used an address at a major conservative convention to call Edwards a “faggot,” I quickly clicked to his home page to see his campaign’s reaction—and was happily diverted to more substantive stuff, such as his firm support of universal healthcare and an end to the war in Iraq. No wonder Coulter hates him: Edwards is a Democrat who believes in the progressive heritage of his party and is not afraid to tell the world.
