The house that frivolous lawsuits bought

Hi Brit,

Here’s a small part of the 2008 Presidential campaign.  I’ll try to do an over view later, but this was just too good to put off.

In the 2004 race, the Democratic team for President and Vice President was John Kerry and John Edwards.  As you well know, they lost.  This time around, Edwards is having a go at the big prize.  Here’s a good article on his background, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Edwards.
