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.
