Salazar Spins Edwards 

In a story about the Healthy Forest Restoration Act, a bill (that eventually passed) to allow maintenance clearing of fire-prone forests, the Grand Junction Sentinal quotes Ken Salazar as having this to say about Sen. John Edwards:

“John Edwards represents the American Dream,” said state Attorney General Ken Salazar.

Salazar, running for U.S. Senate, was endorsed by Edwards earlier this year.

“He came from humble beginnings, the son of a mill worker, to now serving in the U.S. Senate,” Salazar said. “He has spent a lifetime standing up for people; he knows their struggles and their hopes. He represents a fresh start for America, and he is a great choice for John Kerry.”

Salazar is stuck running with, rather than away from, the national ticket, so I wouldn't expect him to say anything different. But if suing your way to the top is the American Dream, that says all you need to know about Ken Salazar's commitment to tort reform.
