Watch Lamar interview former Governor Edwin Edwards


I saw candidate Edwards in action a few months ago at a Loyola forum. Lamar asked him some of the same questions that came up there and his answers don't seem to have changed much.

The highlight of this for me is the way he frames the question of accepting the Medicaid expansion... a far more popular idea with Louisiana voters than Bobby Jindal's stubborn posturing might lead one to believe, by the way. Anyway Edwards says, basically, "Even if you are not a believer in the words of Jesus (that the sick should be cared for)... then look at it from the conservative point of view..."

He needs to keep running with that.  Anyway, go watch.
