I’ve been link blogging a bunch of stuff and keeping it relatively politics free.
But, I’m not going to write a lot about John Edwards. If you care about what happened here today he’s been doing a different interview every 15 minutes, just follow the reports on Google News, and just stood on the lawn next to a destroyed Ninth Ward home in New Orleans and talked with dozens of press here (I counted 20 video cameras). Translation: you can read a ton about what he said, with a lot more coming soon.
Some notes: Fox News actually gave him the best interview and asked the most insightful questions.
Matt Lauer, of Today Show, asked him if he was going to pick Hillary Clinton as his running mate, which drew the biggest laugh from Edwards.
I’ve been getting access to everything. Even back stage stuff when he comes into one of the rebuilt New Orleans homes to get warm. Well, we’re off to Iowa now.
The one consistent theme that resonates with me is that Edwards is asking people to get involved to fix America. The taxi driver yesterday who drove me from the airport said he thought Edwards sounded a lot like John Kennedy. I hear that on the front lawn today.
