One Benefit of the Strike: Fewer Presidential Hopefuls On TV

30306827.jpgPer the L.A. Times:John Edwards, who picketed with Writers Guild strikers Friday, one-upped Hillary Rodham Clinton by announcing that not only would he honor a CBS News strike — were one to occur — by not participating in the network’s Dec. 10 Democratic debate, but he won’t go on The View next week because that guild-represented show is continuing to tape without writers.”

Of course, without these hand-pumpers mugging on camera, there is officially nothing on television. But, still, it somehow makes us feel better that we don’t have to watch Edwards fake-smile his way through a coffee klatch.
