Edwards’ snake-oil

Charles Krauthammer, a medical doctor who lives in a wheelchair, writes passionately against John Edwards’ remark in Iowa on Monday. Edwards famously said: "If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk, get up out of that wheelchair and walk again." Krauthammer is outraged! He thinks Edwards is a snake-oil salesman. Read it.

I think that was the single most spurious claim that any candidate has ever made. Creepy as hell, too. Reeve wasn’t even dead for one day before they tried to turn him into a campaign issue.
