Trying to get attention away from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, John Edwards picked this week (specifically yesterday) to declare that he is running for President. Edwards picked this week to announce his candidacy because his campaign believed that the week between Christmas and New Years would be a slow news week. So what happened? Gerald Ford died, James Brown died and Saddam Hussein may be executed any day now. Plus, there's always news regarding the war in Iraq. So much for a slow news week.
