John Edwards announces run for presidency.

Tomorrow Begins Today...
Former Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards is running for president for a second time.The former North Carolina senator formally announced his candidacy Thursday from New Orleans' 9th Ward, which was hard hit by Hurricane Katrina.

I find it completely ironic that a Democrat would announce his candidacy for the presidency at the site of one of the biggest Democrat political failures in history? I'm speaking, of course, of the failure of Democrat Mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin and of Democrat Governor of Louisiana Kathleen Blanco to handle the Katrina disaster in anything relatively close to a responsible manner then passing the buck to the federal government and President George W. Bush.

Oh .. and Edward is also announcing in the home district of Congressman William Jefferson, the Democrat who is on his way to an indictment. What a great place for an announcement of a campaign, Senator Edwards!

Anyways the campaign slogan is "Tomorrow begins today." Whatever the hell that means…I suppose that is better than “Hope is on the way.”"This campaign is about changing America," the Web site read, listing five priorities that fit with Edwards' message of economic equality: "Providing universal health care for all Americans," "Rebuilding America's middle class and eliminating poverty," and "Creating tax fairness by rewarding work, not just wealth."

So, I got a question for John Edwards: How do you eliminate poverty? The only way you can eliminate poverty is to eliminate wealth in a complete socialistic system where everybody has the same amount of everything…a task that has been tried and failed to work…it was called Communism.
