Feingold Points Out Edwards Flip FlopsDemocratic presidential candidate John Edwards talks a good talk. Senator Russ Feingold knows that all too well. When it comes to the walk, Edwards's record in the Senate shows something quite different. Senator Feingold discusses the inconsistency between what John Edwards says and what John Edwards has actually done in an interview with the Appleton Post-Crescent. Feingold notes that of the top three Democratic presidential candidates,
"The one that is the most problematic is Edwards, who voted for the Patriot Act, campaigns against it. Voted for No Child Left Behind, campaigns against it.
