What a gutless dithering douchebag pussy John Edwards has turned out to be, sitting on the sidelines, thinking things over, unable to pull the trigger for days on end. My respect for the man has gone out the window.
It’s not that he’s reportedly thinking about endorsing Hillary Clinton, which would be fine. (She’s all but finished anyway and the Edwards voters have already re-aligned so what does it matter?) It’s the fact that he’s been acting like the softer, squishier, less decisive brother of Gregory Peck‘s character in The Big Country. By the standards of that 1958 William Wyler film, a part of me wants to see the kind of decisiveness exemplified by Burl Ives or Charles Bickford‘s characters in my Presidential candidates.
