With all due respect, I could not disagree more.
The "little people" have to pay taxes, and are expected to do so on time.
The issue is a moot point with respect to Edwards' dead-in-the-water Presidential campaign. But in my opinion, he just lost his Senate seat.
Its total nonsense to focus on a guy who paid his bills late. In fact I'll bet that a large majority of folks would sympathize with him.
Look, if people accept a drunk leaving the scene of an accident, they are not going to worry about someone who paid his taxes late. In fact, there are a fair number of Freepers who hate the tax man so badly he would probably get their vote.
