Dem Con Sunday: Maxine Waters for president


By Tim Redmond

The warm up for John Edwards is L.A. Rep. Maxine Waters -- and she utterly steals the show. "We cannot deal with our domestic agenda until we end this war in Iraq," she says to rousing cheers. She talks about "the most dastardly lie ever told to the American people by their president." She goes through an amazing litany of what's gone wrong in Iraq, then says:

"Democrats, your presidential candidates and elected officials must stop nuancing and playing it safe."

I'm voting Maxine for president.
