Is Edwards’ Bus a Campaign Omen

John Edwards, who put all of his eggs in a basket named Iowa, decided to launch a 26 hour tour around the state in order to talk to the voters again prior to tomorrow’s caucus. While in route to an event his bus broke down and the candidate and his staff had to scurry to get into vans and dash off to the event. They were more than 45 minutes late in reaching a group of people who did not appreciate the tardiness. Of course, anyone can be excused for a mechanical breakdown.

However, in the big picture, the bus is symbolic of Edwards and his ideas. Both are tired and broken down. Edwards espouses big government with increased taxes in order to enact more social spending programs. Americans, who are already over taxed, would pay even more under an Edwards Administration. The same can really be said about all the Democratic candidates because they all want higher taxes (they say it is on the rich but then they define rich to include many people who are anything but) to pay for universal health care, an idea that has failed in every country in which it has been tried, despite Michael Moore and his propaganda film to the contrary. Hillary claimed that America could not afford her ideas and she is right.

The Edwards bus is really be symbolic of the Democratic contenders because even though they talk change and fresh ideas, their views and desires are old plans that have been part of the Democratic play book for decades and they, like the bus, are broken down and useless.

Edwards put a lot in Iowa where he has been campaigning for the last four years and a stroke of bad luck might sound the funeral dirge for his campaign especially since Obama seems to be firing on all cylinders. It will be interesting to see if he can rebound and have a strong showing tomorrow. If he loses Iowa and has a poor showing in New Hampshire we might see him with a one way bus ticket home.

Well, at least his car is working well enough to chase ambulances…
