Okay, not really, but close. Actually it's Danny Glover, fan and business partner of Hugo Chavez. It seems that Edwards and Glover have been/will be traveling the country together discussing Edwards' vision for the poor. According to Glover, Edwards understands the needs of the working poor and that the campaign is telling their story. "This is a campaign about real democracy," Glover said. Um...forgive my skepticism, but I don't think Edwards understands the first damn thing about the working poor, $400 haircuts? Twenty eight thousand square foot homes? Yeah, uh huh, riiight. I doubt that any of the candidates from either side understand the needs of the working poor. Maybe a few of them did at one time, but by now they are so far removed from the average American and their own, possible, humble roots that they would be lying if they said otherwise. Back on topic... I'm not sure that teaming up with Danny Glover is the best idea Edwards has ever had. I am of the opinion, based on the things he's said, that Glover is as far left as a person can be. Socialist would apply, communist would probably be appropriate as well. Is Edwards a socialist? A communist? Somehow I don't think that Glover will be an asset for Edwards, but then again, I don't think he has a chance to win the nomination.
