No Daylight Between Edwards and Dean

Daily Kos points us to John Edwards' press-release-blog where he retracts his distancing last weekend from Howard Dean:
Howard and I have been saying the same thing about this for years. Hear that? The same thing. For years. Have I ever put it some way that Howard wouldn't agree with? Probably. And he put it in a way, once, just the other day, that I can’t agree with, since I come from a place where hard-working people, who are better served by the agenda and passion of the Democrats, somehow still vote Republican.

The "somehow" in that final phrase tells all.

If you're gonna make a retraction for purposes of political expediency, maybe you should craft the thing so that your motives aren't so blatantly transparent?

I don't think wanting to say something nice about Republicans is a motive that needs to be concealed.

I'm not sure he does want to say smoething nice about Republicans. I could be wrong, but isn't Edwards saying that he doesn't understand how people could be dumb enough to vote Republican when presented with all of the facts?
