John Edwards appeared on the Today Show this morning in advance of his speech in front of the Council for Foreign Relations and very clearly stated the framing that every Democrat should be memorizing.

LAUER: Is it possible, Senator, that this is all about the Democrats' fear that they'll be seen as ‘unpatriotic' and not supporting the troops?

EDWARDS: This should not be about politics at all, Matt. I mean, we have men and women dying in Iraq, I was listening to your newscast just a few minutes ago. This is about life and death. This is about war. We have families who are sending young men and women over there to put their lives on the line. We need to stand our ground.

Thanks to SilentPatriot for the vids and screen cap.

UPDATE: John Edwards' campaign is urging political action this coming Memorial Day weekend. Check "Support The Troops. End The War" for locations near you and ideas of actions you can take to make your voice heard. As the campaign urges: Give President Bush a message: It ends here.
