Edwards Gets Off the Bus in the Crescent City (Video)

Posted: Updated:

Since it's a rerun world, this my video of former candidate John Edwards in New Orleans last year. He spoke about his environmental concerns and marched in a second line to the Super Dome.

Jumping in for a short interview, I asked why he thought his focus on rebuilding New Orleans was not striking a response with the rest of the country and he said "Because America has moved on." Marching in step with Da Truth brass band, he seemed resigned to it.

So when Edwards canceled campaign stops for a trip back to New Orleans I had a feeling that he was going to leave the race where he started. It draws you back in that way. He could do worse than beginning and ending in the City that Care Forgot.
