John Edwards Pulls Out Of CBC/Fox News Debate

   Presidential hopeful John Kerry has pulled out of the Fox sponsored Congressional Black Caucus debate, once again beating the rest of the Democratic field to the punch.

    In an email to Talking Points Memo, deputy campaign manager Jonathan Prince said,

"We just called the CBC to let them know that we're looking forward to their January debate with CNN but we're not going to participate in the proposed debate with Fox. The CBC champions critical issues that matter enormously to the future of our country, and we look forward to discussing them throughout this campaign and at their debate in January. But we believe there's just no reason for Democrats to give Fox a platform to advance the right-wing agenda while pretending they're objective. If there was any uncertainty as to Fox's objectivity, it was put to rest when they attacked Democratic candidates, Democratic constituency groups, and the Nevada Democratic party when their last proposed debate was canceled for lack of support."

  Good for you Mr. Edwards! Maybe now the spineless wonders ( Clinton, Obama ) will follow your lead once again.
