Am I the Only One Who’s Underwhelmed by John Edwards?

Today in New Orleans, John Edwards announced that he’s running for president in 2008. I heard on television today that he chose to New Orleans, more specifically the Ninth Ward, which Susan Estrich describes as “one of the most depressing places in America, the still-devastated, never prosperous Ninth Ward” for his announcement because, according to Edwards, it best illustrates his class warfare “Two Americas,” one for the rich and one for the poor. I’m surprised he’s using the same theme from the Democrat primary in 2004. It may have been effective in the beginning, but the shine wore off that apple pretty quickly.
