Two Americas

Democratic Senator John Edwards, when he was running for office, liked to talk about two Americas: the really poor and the really prosperous.  I guess he knew of what he was speaking.  The trial under way involving illegal campaign finance activities to keep his mistress quiet leads to this fascinating section from April 27, 2012 CNN:
Prosecutors have argued that Edwards broke federal law by accepting about $725,000 from now-101-year-old heiress Rachel "Bunny" Mellon and more than $200,000 from Fred Baron, a Texas lawyer who has since died.
Ah yes, the party of the little people.
