    Did anyone watch this boob on Meet the Press Sunday??

    [quote][b]MR. RUSSERT: I think what confuses people, Senator, is that there seems to be a difference in rhetoric and emphasis. Back in October of 2002, you voted to authorize the country to go to war. In fact, you said this about Saddam: "I think Iraq is the most serious and imminent threat to our country." "The most serious and imminent threat to our country."

    And you underscored it by saying this:

    (Videotape, CNN "Late Edition," February 24, 2002):

    SEN. EDWARDS: And I think Iraq and Saddam Hussein present the most serious and most imminent threat.

    (End videotape)

    MR. RUSSERT: "Most serious and imminent threat." Were you just dead wrong?

    SEN. EDWARDS: No, I think Saddam Hussein was a very serious threat. I stand by that, and that's why we stand behind our vote on the resolution. But I don't know how many times I can say the same thing: We did not authorize this president to make the mess that he's made. That is the responsibility of the president of the United States. It is the president's responsibility to put the coalition together. It is the president's responsibility to make sure that, after our military does its job and our military has done everything they've been asked to do--it is the responsibility of the president to make sure we can be successful by having a plan in place and being--having an ability to implement that plan to win the peace. He did neither of those things, and those failures are catastrophic, catastrophic for America and catastrophic for what's happening in Iraq right now.

    MR. RUSSERT: But you will acknowledge that Saddam was not "the most imminent threat to America" when you said that?

    SEN. EDWARDS: You mean what we now know? We now know that he didn't have weapons of mass destruction. We didn't know that at the time. But we do now know that and that is a difference. There's no question about that.

    MR. RUSSERT: I want to ask you to clear something else up. In--back in September, you were in the presidential debate; you were asked about voting money to support our troops, and this is what you had to say:

    (Videotape, Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, September 25, 2003):

    SEN. EDWARDS: We have young men and women in a shooting gallery over there right now. It would be enormously irresponsible for any of us not to do what's necessary to support them. I will vote for what's necessary to support the troops.

    (End videotape)

    MR. RUSSERT: About three weeks later, there was a chance to vote for $87 billion to support the troops and you voted no. Why the inconsistency?

    SEN. EDWARDS: Well, the reason for the vote was it was clear at that point that what I just talked about was true, that the president had no plan, that our troops who were on the ground there needed somebody to stand up and say on their behalf that "You don't have a plan and we need a plan," both for our troops and for us to be successful there. The second reason is that the administration insisted that that vote include about $20 billion of money out of which came billions of dollars of no-bid contracts for Halliburton. We were not then and I am not now for no-bid contracts for Halliburton, the vice president's former company. I think that's wrong.

    It was an audio clip.

    Are you suggesting that Drudge is impersonating Edwards&#39; voice to create bogus sound bites?

    I&#39;m holding out for free 0 cal beer, the lame to walk, the blind to see and the dead to arise. Heck, that stuff&#39;s as improbable as this. Why should Kedwards not promise it all?
