Edwards To Use War on Poverty as Springboard for 2008

John Edwards is showing all the signs of a presidential candidate as he makes the rounds of southern states with the goal of eradicating poverty. A noble goal to be sure, but it sounds an awful lot like his ill-received 'two Americas' boilerplate from 2004. He'll have to do better than that if he wants to make a serious run; after all, quite a few of us happen to think the best engine for improving the economic lot of Americans is good ol' capitalism (see the post immediately below). Tip of the hat to Jayson at PoliPundit, who is clearly unimpressed...
