Here is an interesting article about John Edwards. A little quote below, then go read the rest:
Edwards, who leads the new Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is building his foreign policy resume - perhaps in response to criticism during his 2004 presidential run that he lacked overseas experience and with an eye toward another possible campaign. But his work on poverty seems to touch everything he does.
When asked Thursday about his focus on Russia - a nation more associated with the Cold War than the war on terror - Edwards mentioned his recent op-ed article about Iraq that was published in the Washington Post.
