Mike Gravel In YouTube Spotlight, Comes Out Swinging

Mike Gravel gets right to it in the YouTube YouChoose Spotlight. Not one for chit-chat, after a brief introductory video, Gravel starts slinging the mud at rival Democrat, John Edwards. Gravel connects the metaphorical dots, illustrating how John Edwards' previous employer, Fortress Investment Group helped finance Humana Health, a predatory health care provider. Therefore, John Edwards profits from Humana despite his plan for health care reform. Is there truth to it? Well, I'm on vacation so I didn't bother fact checking. Regardless, for a baby candidate, Gravel sure knows how to make lots of noise. And the YouTube is listening...

I really think the noise makers are the best thing about the debates....they are not afraid to tackle the difficult issues...issues the other candidates would rather avoid on live TV (or frame in a different more generic way)..no wonder Hillary and John murmured to one another about making the debate group smaller....America wants the truth!....keep firing the hard questions....

Thanks Mary. So the question is, is the endgame for the noise-makers to raise the bar for the other candidates or to promote a three party system?

Raise the bar I hope....how about flat campaign funding?!...similar to the Clean Election Act. I am an Independent...but not sure a third-party system would work...the jury is still out....an even playing field ($$$)...YES ~
