Remember John Edwards’ “Two Americas” speech? There are two Americas, he said, "One America that is struggling to get by, another America that can buy anything it wants, even a Congress and a President. " (As if it were ever any different -- anywhere, even America.)

Here’s his America:

Wow. Look at all that clear-cutting. And where are the solar panels? I’ll bet that house requires a lot of incandescent light bulbs.

From the content of his speech, I thought perhaps he lived in my America.

And to think I still occasionally see bumper stickers that say, “I’m not rich enough to be a Republican.”
