Edwards Builds New Platform

Edwards took a two-year faculty position at the University of North Carolina, where he will lead the new nonpartisan Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity. In his speeches, he uses the vocabulary of morality and social responsibility to talk about the nation's persistent inability to narrow the gaps in income and opportunity.

Two thoughts come to mind: (1) Does anyone believe that the newly created Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity is nonpartisan when it was created as a forum for a former U.S. Senator, who is a former Vice Presidential candidate, and who seems to already be running for President in the next election? (2)What do you think John Edwards would say about The Irrelevance of Income Inequality ?
