Who is the only Democrat with he guts to take on

Ben Smith posts this on The Politico:

Not sure it's really meant that way, but in any case, Elizabeth Edwards makes hers the first campaign to directly criticize's "General Betray Us" ad, breaking with the Democrats' strategy of, basically, ignoring it.

“Someone who’s spent their life in the military doesn’t deserve ‘General Betray Us,’” said Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards.

In the first place Mrs. Edwards is correct. I draw your attention to the fact that her tepid criticism is the only denunciation of MoveOn's despicable action from any Democrat campaign so far.

But the interesting thing is that this is only the latest case in which the Breck Girl has put his wife out front when there was a battle to be fought. What if there was another 9/11 type terrorist attack during an Edwards presidency? Would Mrs. Edwards be put in charge of formulating the nation's response?
