John Edwards' House is Ridiculous

Isn't there something inherently contradictory about having a 28,000 square foot house yet basing your entire campaign platform around helping the "little guy"? Maybe there is more to this than I understand. Perhaps his house also doubles as a school, or a library, or a halway house for a couple dozen folks trying to work their way out of troubles. If not, what the hell do you need a 28,000 square foot house for?

Also, to be fair, Edwards is far from the only person out there with foolishly excessive personal housing. But he is the most high profile one currently advocating to bring down those greedy, over privileged rich folks.
