Barack Obama is simply out of touch with the mainstream of this country. It was a surprise to see Dave "Mudcat" Saunders, a prominent Edwards advisor, speak out against the anti-working class candidate.
I really hope that this shows the Edwardses the light on who their candidate should be. We real Democrats have got to stick together :)
Let's hear it for Hillary!!!

"I'm a southern boy myself," Saunders told CNN by phone. "I don't have a gun because I'm bitter, it's because I've always had one. I don't pray to God because I'm bitter. I pray to God because it makes my life better."
Saunders said "rural America will be crucial in this election."
"The one thing that I preached during this whole deal is we can't be stereotyping anybody," he said. "Well, Barack Obama just stereotyped my people out in rural America."
"Here's a guy who says he shouldn't be stereotyped, but yet he stereotyped us."
