Democrats Need More People Like Elizabeth Edwards

Reported by Ellen - June 26, 2007 -

Elizabeth Edwards, wife of presidential candidate John Edwards, did what most Democrats and nearly all television pundits have failed to do: She confronted Coulter on her lies, her malice and her debasing of political discourse.

Edwards was gracious and polite but firm in her request that Coulter cease her personal attacks. Coulter lied in response. As Crooks and Liars reports, Coulter's defense was that the statement that had offended Edwards had been made three years ago. Crooks and Liars has more. So does Think Progress.

A poll on MSNBC.com asks who's right, Edwards or Coulter. Right now, the vote is 95% for Edwards, 5% for Coulter. You can take the poll here.
