PEGGY NOONAN on John Edwards: "Mr. Edwards's populism is the worst of both worlds, both intemperate and insincere. Also we can't have a president who spent two minutes on YouTube staring in a mirror and poofing his hair. Really, we just can't."

HOW FANTASTIC is this video, showing the making of the Band Aid classic "Do They Know It's Christmas?"



Have I posted this before? It seems like I should have, because this is the second year I've been obsessed with it, but perhaps not. Phil Collins, Sting, George Michael, Bono, Simon Le Bon -- they're all there with their crazy 80s 'dos. Such cheesy goodness.

You can read all about the recording of the song (including how Boy George had to be rushed over on the Concorde to sing his bit) here.
