One America, two Americas… aw, who’s counting?
: After hearing the eloquent and embracing Obama speech the night before last declaring that we are, after all, one United States of America, I was amused at reports that Edwards was going to recycle much of his “two Americas” shtick from the primaries. So which is it: One America or two? Edwards ended up soft-pedaling his divided America theme and I’m glad for it. The problem with the campaign and so much around it (see: Fahrenheit 9/11) is the effort to divide us from within. The winner in this election will be the man who brings us together.
