|Subject:||Who wrote this column, and what did they do with David Brooks?|
I never would've expected to see David Brooks write a favorable column about John Edwards. How nice to a see his contrarianism pay off with a good idea, for once.
I have a bit of a soft spot for Brooks -- I get why he's "liberals' favorite conservative", he does seem like a basically nice, decent man, which separates him from the mean-spiritedness of both the WSJ ed-page economic conservatives, and the even more scary hardcore cultural conservatives. But he's such a dope so much of the time!
