Report: John Edwards Charges $55,000 for Speech on Poverty
John Edwards has an example to teach University of California at Davis students how to avoid poverty — charge $55,000 for a speech.
That's how much the 2008 Democratic presidential candidate negotiated for his fee to speak to 1,787 people at the taxpayer-funded school in January 2006, according to financial disclosures.

I don't blame Edwards for being the hypocritical, greedy scumbag he is; just as I don't blame Kennedy, or Kerry, or Gore, for being the same. I do blame the voters from their states for foisting these insane, liberal dinosaurs upon the rest of us year after year.
