From the New York Times:
Former Senator John Edwards chose a devastated neighborhood in this flood-stricken city today to formally begin his quest for the presidency, declaring that his campaign would emphasize the “two Americas” theme he embraced two years ago.
There are not two Americas. There is a continuum of opportunity and untold wealth in the U.S. Opportunity that is available to all within a continuum of hard work and luck. I predict this meme will be put aside rather quickly if there are any smart people on the campaign staff.
I guess Edwards couldn't redistribute wealth fast enough as an ambulance chaser, so he had to go into politics.
