Edwards Holds Town Hall Meeting in Colorado

John Edwards is holding an 11:30 am town hall meeting in Commerce City, CO, today, before flying off to Burbank, CA to tape the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno and then make an 11pm fundraiser in San Francisco. Let's hope he leaves the crack-down on meth labs talk in Iowa.

Edwards said he and presidential nominee John Kerry would propose legislation to limit consumers to two standard packages per day of cold medicines that contain pseudoephedrine, an ingredient used in Sudafed and other drugs. Bulk sales of cold medicines would be more closely monitored to track suspicious sales.

They also would propose spending $30 million annually for 10 years to fund law enforcement efforts and help farmers buy better locks to secure ammonia tanks where drug dealers steal the ammonia they need to make meth.

Can his advisors please tell him to stick to Iraq, where's Osama, health care, social security and our droopy economy? For once we have a national election where being tough on crime is not a major issue for voters. Let's keep it that way.
