Edwards Launches Poverty Tour In The Mold Of RFK
John Edwards begins three-day, eight-state anti-poverty tour today, reminiscent of the Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 trip that also ended in Appalachia. It will begin in New Orleans, the same place Edwards declared his candidacy. "I think the best measure is not a poll," Edwards said of the country's attitudes about poverty, "but the way Americans responded when a hurricane hit New Orleans. They made contributions. They volunteered."
Bobby Kennedy was the man who first inspired me to get seriously involved in politics, so while I'm glad to see a candidate emulating his deeds, it's a very high standard to meet, and I hope this is more than just another photo op.
