Edwards is running an interesting campaign right now. For months he harped on the "son of a mill worker" theme, to little effect. But since the turn of the year he's sounded two new themes.
During the Iowa campaign he picked up on Dean's empowerment theme -- "together we can do this," etc. His trial lawyer experience came in handy, as he was very effective in his efforts to connect with voters and talk about them -- again, not unlike Dean's comment that "they're not trying to stop me, they're trying to stop you."
Now, in New Hampshire, Edwards is turning to a Bobby Kennedy-esque theme of social justice, "declaring that 'we have a moral obligation' to lift poor Americans out of poverty," as reported by the Times. He made reference to poverty during the debate, too, as you undoubtedly know.
The questions: Has Edwards proposed specific anti-poverty programs? Will he stick with these two themes? Does he have a history of emphasizing poverty and social justice and citizen empowerment? Are these tactics going to prove effective in the campaign?
