Huffington Posts LNW’s ‘Ballsy’ Edwards Endorsement

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

LNW_Edwards-podiumPerhaps it was because the whole world was waiting to see whom among the 2008 presidential candidate Levees Not War would endorse—or maybe there was another reason—but the admirable HuffingtonPost featured our John Edwards endorsement in their “Off the Bus” campaign section (‘Ground Level Coverage of Campaign ’08’). The editors chose an amusing headline: ‘NOLA Endorsement: Edwards Will “Kick Repubs in the Balls”.’ Actually what we said (as you can see below) was: ‘Democrats need a tough candidate who won’t hesitate to kick the Republicans in the balls’—but who’s quibbling?

HuffPo’s mention was also picked up by a German blog, Gebloggtewelten.de, under the heading ‘Alles Wieder Gut?’ Our German is a little rusty, but if translations come through, we’ll provide a rendering in English for those who just can’t wait to find out what the Germans are saying about John Edwards and Levees Not War.
