I've been dubious all along of a candidate who wasn't exactly a left-wing leader when he was in the U.S. Senate. But these days he's at least willing to talk about taxing the very rich. And I just read an interesting diary on daily kos that looks at his record in some depth. Granted, it's by an out-front Edwards supporter, but it's worth a read.
