What's the Greensboro News and Record got against John Edwards?

Yesterday's campaign stop at Bennet College was great fun and I got to pick up a sign. It was the standard stump speech meany of you have heard. If not, make sure you do.

So this morning I was reading the Greensboro News and Record, and what do I see on the front page? A picture of Senator Edwards walking on stage with his two young children under the headline:

"CHASING BLACK VOTES"

Excuse me? A major presidential candidate visits one of two historically black colleges for women and its suddenly chasing black votes? He spoke about the historic significance of Greensboro in the Civil Rights Movement and encouraged the college students in the crowd to be active. And it's not like he's some blue-blood yankee coming down to reach out. He's from North Carolina, but none of that matters, apparently.

My first BlueNC blogpost -- GSO/Guilford County blogging

Here's my first post. I've been lurking for a year or so, and I hope to post regularly on Greensboro politicking, local issues, and the 08 races.

I'm an Edwards backer, but I'm also interested in what's coming out of the woodwork for the 08 Senate race.

And maybe you guys can help me understand the General Assembly.
