John Edwards isn't going away!

John Edwards, a.k.a Clinton 2.0, cutie pie, and John Kerry's Boobjob, apparently isn't ok with just fading away from the public eye the way politicians who lose usualy do. Gotta give the man credit, he lost the Democratic party nomination, he lost his senate seat and he lost the coveted "vice president" of John Kerry job when the latter blew the presidential elections. The man is a triple time loser in a single year and he is therefore naturally being hailed as one of the potential democratic candidates for President in 08. Cause, you know, the democrats, they always know how to pick a winner. So what is he and the wifey planning on doing you may wonder: Sometime in the next few months, they'll put their house in Washington on the market. Come spring, when school lets out, they'll move back to North Carolina, where he has taken a position as director of the new Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He and his wife met there, 30 years ago, in their first year of law school. As he explains it, the center will study ways to lift people out of poverty. Finding more way to sue rich people, of course, will be on top of that list! The Edwardses have already bought some land out in the country there, where they are looking to build a new house. The kids will attend public school nearby. He'll also be burnishing his foreign-policy credentials, apparently, though he won't spell out how. (Some think-tank thing? "No, more like a commission thing.'') Clearly, he'd like to preserve the option of running for president again in four years. But he is not being coy when he says he can't focus on that at the moment. Ok, what does he mean by "a commission thing"? Does anyone know? I am curious. Asked what lessons could be drawn from the '04 campaign, he says that if others want to spend time mulling them, "they're welcome to do that, but it's not what I'm going to do.'' Good for him. Can't wait for him to run again in 08 with that attitude. Would rather him then Hillary, you know? Altough, to be fair, i would rather almost anyone then Hillary.

I really don't think that Edwards has much of a future. Of course, that won't stop him from running.
