Go Read The Krugmeister
By: Mark W Adams

Since about six different people sent me a copy of Krugman's The Edwards Effect, I figured I better let everyone know I'm on it. Now you go read it too.

But Mr. Edwards, far more than is usual in modern politics, ran a campaign based on ideas. And even as his personal quest for the White House faltered, his ideas triumphed: both candidates left standing are, to a large extent, running on the platform Mr. Edwards built.
BTW, since the New York Times links seem to disappear into the ozone after a while, I thought I'd pass along Aaron Swartz' New York Times Link Generator which translates a submitted page from the Times into something that has a much greater shelf-life.
