Edwards Leaves Center to “New” Director

By now you have probably heard all about how John Edwards has resigned his post as Director of the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity. The DTH commented on it here and the News&Observer commented here.

An interesting aspect of the story is what the new director (and the former deputy director), Marion Crain, told the DTH. “It’s pretty much the same as what I was doing before,” Crain said. In other words, Edwards really didn’t do much of anything while he was the director.

This just confirms what the Review has said from the start. Check out our earlier musings on the Committee to elect Joh…, I mean the Center on Poverty here and here.
