It’s difficult to see how John Edwards is going to “transform the world” when he hasn’t been able to clean up one neighborhood in New Orleans over the last 14 months. Maybe that’s a good lesson for the Nation At Large. Or maybe instead of hanging out with a bunch of college kids on spring break one week last year and then patting himself on the back for it months in speeches, Edwards should have raised money to bring in people who actually know how to build houses. It’s a reletively novel idea, yet knowing Edwards’ attachment to bold change, I thought I might offer it up anyhow.
After all, I can’t help but notice Uncle John’s Plantation somehow got built a whole lot faster.
