From the Des Moines Register:
MoveOn.org should not have labeled Gen. David Petraeus â€œGeneral Betray Usâ€ in a controversial newspaper ad, Elizabeth Edwards said in Des Moines Friday.
â€œSomeone whoâ€™s spent their life in the military doesnâ€™t deserve â€˜General Betray Us,â€™â€ said Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards.
Elizabeth Edwards spoke in an interview after a Des Moines campaign appearance. She noted that her father was a career naval officer, and she grew up on Navy bases, so she said she respects military service.
For once, and this is somewhat historic, Elizabeth Edwards and I agree fully on a topic.
However, then our utopian agreement is ruined:
Elizabeth Edwards said the group could have made its point by simply using Petraeusâ€™ own previous words about purported good news in Iraq without insulting him personally.
At least she’d prefer to play fair.
