John Edwards made it official today with his speech in the Ninth Ward announcing his candidacy. Edwards will probably be able to count on strong union support, and he’s polling well in Iowa, where he had a surprisingly strong second place finish in 2004. But with unemployment at 4.5 percent, it’s hard to see his “two Americas” speech gaining much traction.
