Mike Doyle at Chicago Carless liveblogs by iPhone from Monday morning's Laborers International Union of North America forum for Democratic presidential candidates. John Edwards "promised to sign a bill on first day as President ending healthcare for Congress, President, and all political appointees until a national healthcare bill is passed."

As reported, this crowd-pleaser doesn't provide a very good civics lesson. First Congress would have to pass such a bill in order for President Edwards to have anything to sign, and why would the legislators put themselves in the trap?
