"Edwards' 'Two Americas' speech, which earned him so much popularity among the Democratic base and which in turn bought him the nod from Kerry, does not mention terrorism at all. It was a crowd-pleasing speech for a party that wanted the whole issue of foreign policy just to go away. In fact, both Kerry and Edwards constantly appeal to the nostalgia of voters - 'let America be America again' is Kerry's motto - for an imagined time when there were no serious challenges in the world, be it the 1990s or John Edward's childhood." - Jonah Goldberg
