The Right take on higher education.

Edwards Again


John Kerry’s running mate, former North Carolina senator John Edwards, lets loose with his populist ideas on higher education here.

Among them, why the U.S. ought to guarantee public higher education just like K-12, that colleges should have “diversity across the board,” that higher education is absolutely crucial to success today, and that it’s bad, bad, bad, to give tax cuts to the rich when we could be spending more to get students into college.

Very dreary stuff. Edwards is evidently warming up for another try in 2008.
