Do You Believe . . . in Hair?
By: Mark W Adams

Politico quotes John Edwards' "key response" during the debate last night, pronouncing him the winner, having found his "theme" and because, "He is bold and he will use his boldness for you." (Please note that is no typo -- Politico, which has written more about John Edwards hair than any other semi-legitimate media outlet except Drudge, did not say he is bAld, but bOld!)

Do you believe that compromise, triangulation will bring about big change? I don't. I think the people who are powerful in Washington -- big insurance companies, big drug companies, big oil companies -- they are not going to negotiate. They are not going to give away their power! The only way that they are going to give away their power is if we take it away from them!

He's received rave reviews for the "Hair" video, views over 24,000 times in just one day -- the most watched video of all the candidates -- which takes a slash at the media and turns a supposed weakness "on it's head."

The biggest winner: John Edwards, who should have buried the discussion of his haircut finally with a campaign ad which played the theme song of the musical "Hair" with a video montage of visuals which provided a stark reminder that there are more serious issues confronting our nation than whether a rich guy blew too much money on a haircut.

I thought his answer about the Iraqi Parliament taking off during the month of August was very strong -- especially when he asked if Bush would be taking off to Crawford at the same time. Excellent, excellent point.

Scored on the healthcare question too.

+1 Edwards.
