John Edwards Doesn't Spend Much Time at Poverty Center

+ More

Former senator John Edwards has some mixed nuts in his University of North Carolina Law School office but not much else, the Daily Tarheel reports. Edwards told the paper he comes to that office—the headquarters of his Center on Poverty, Work, and Opportunity—about one day a week. But the center is "by far the major component of what I do," Edwards said, dismissing the paper's very strong hints that politicking and future-presidential-office-hunting have eclipsed his poverty work.
