This announcement, far from looking and sounding delusional, is understated and hefty with import and meaning. It means his focus is almost where it should be. Heavy on earnest focus groupspeak, Edwards actually appears engaged and forthright. At least he is doing something. When is the last time Queen Hillary got her hands dirty? This is looking more and more like a Bill Bradley redux. It’s compelling in a calculated, feel your pain (poverty) kind of way that hits the right notes without sounding too radically left-wing wacko. It is an interesting balancing act that will carry him farther than pundits think now.
