Good To Hear From You, Buddy

My good buddy John Edwards just sent me an e-mail with his plans for the next couple of years. Figured you guys might want to know them too:

I am very proud to say that I will be joining UNC to launch its new Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity, which will examine innovative and practical ideas for moving more Americans out of poverty and into the middle class. The fact that millions in this country go to work every day and still live in poverty is wrong and unacceptable. This is personal to me, and I believe that it is one of the most important moral issues of our time.

Together with UNC, I will work hands-on to explore creative approaches to the difficulties that families in poverty face every day. We may not have all the answers right now, but I can promise you this: we will be asking the hard questions. We will work tirelessly so that America's bright light of opportunity shines on all of us.

Sounds like a plan. I'm not sure how politically savvy it is; Edwards is simply augmenting his strength (domestic) without doing anything to counter his weakness on foreign policy, but it seems like a good venture anyway. More importantly, the e-mail says Elizabeth is about to finish chemo and it went really, really well. Thank God for that.
