JOHN EDWARDS announces for President.

Scott Ott says he’s ahead of the curve.

Those cheering on Mr. Edwards’s antipoverty crusade include party strategist Donna Brazile, who was Al Gore’s campaign manager in his 2000 presidency bid. Recalling Mr. Edwards’s past emphasis on the “Two Americas” theme, she says: “In 2004, that message went largely unheard. To his credit, he kept at it. And Katrina demonstrated the validity of that message.”

It’s going to be interesting to see if Edwards can keep to this theme without taking a hard Lou Dobbs / Pat Buchanan kind of line against immigration and foreign trade.
