Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, who as a Democratic presidential candidate recently proposed an educational policy that urged "every financial barrier" be removed for American kids who want to go to college, has been going to college himself -- as a high paid speaker, his financial records show.

The candidate charged a whopping $55,000 to speak at to a crowd of 1,787 the taxpayer-funded University of California at Davis on Jan. 9, 2006 last year, Joe Martin, the public relations officer for the campus' Mondavi Center confirmed Monday.

It is obvious as someone "concerned" about poverty Mr. Edwards want to make others know what it feels like to be impoverished by impoverishing them. These Limo Leftists, the way I like to say it, they kick capitalism and the profit motive by day and sleep with them at night with the shades down.

I do not mind people charging what they can for their goods and services, I hate it when those people who can not empathize with other people doing the same. Do as you say not as you do, huh Mr. Edwards?
