Edwards uses new tools

John Edwards has been doing a lot since he announced his candidacy for president in New Orleans last week. He's held town halls in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada, and attended a rally in his home state of North Carolina. While his travel strategy might not shock you, he's also getting his name out by using new tools like text messaging (join OneCorps by texting 'hope' to 30644), YouTube and his blog to reach out to folks from around the country.

(It's great to see Edwards employing the new tools that NPI has been discussing. Hopefully when Mitt Romney and others file/announce, we'll see the same from them.)

In his e-mail entitled "Tomorrow Begins Today," Edwards lays out his plan, telling us that "we know what we need to do."

Changing our country means:

  • Providing moral leadership in the world -- starting with Iraq, where we should begin drawing down troops, not escalating the war
  • Strengthening our middle class and ending the shame of poverty
  • Guaranteeing health care for every single American
  • Leading the fight against global warming
  • Getting America and the world to break our addiction to oil
