Edwards to Announce in NOLA

I respect Edwards very much and now more so

Edwards, who represented North Carolina in the Senate for six years, plans to make the campaign announcement late this month from the New Orleans neighborhood hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina last year and slow to recover from the storm.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to pre-empt Edwards’ announcement.

As Edwards enters the crowded field, the Lower Ninth Ward provides a stark backdrop to highlight his signature issue — that economic inequality means that the country is divided into “two Americas.”

  1. There’s been something odd around here with the commenting — I’ve been trying for days to log in and haven’t been able to; probably El Gato Negro has been having the same difficulty.
    I’m sure he didn’t CHOOSE to be anonymous.

  2. It’s not anonymous – the EGN shows it”s El Gato Negro (a regular at Atrios’ place) – (s)he aways posts in a farcical accent online.
    And no I’m posting this anonymously – it’s Thor Heyerdahl.

  3. i tried to figure out what you’re saying here. I coud not.
    the funny spelling comes across as a very self-congratulatory device, and makes your point illegible.
    Your anonymity further shows that you don’t appear to care a whit about being understood.
    it’s like profanity, it gives people a reason to ignore you out of hand.
    you can’t blame them.

  4. being out of DC can only help.
    i swear that water is BAD.
    or the dinner parties.

  5. I just hope to see more of the Edwards who gave the fiery speech about counting all the votes, on election night 04 een Ohio.
    I do no so much need to see the Edwards who sat down and had a tea party weeth el Cyborgo.
    Eet just seems to me that eef Edwards stays away from EVERYONE who worked on the Kerry04 campaign, he could do very well eendeed.
    As a matter of fact, I would hinge my own leetle (admittedly ignorant) formula for 08 campaign success on who can stay the furthest away from Brazile, Shrum, Elmendorf, etc.

  6. Man that is terrific
    Course he could announce in Lakeview, Gentilly etc…
    What the hell, let’s put him on the bridge and let Harry Lee try to stop him

  7. I’ve been feeling the Richardson love lately, but this is wicked smart of Edwards and necessary, too.
