John Edwards Kicks Off New Campaign

Okay, so maybe it's not official, but all the signs point that direction.
Former US senator John Edwards, the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2004, broke yesterday with his campaign stance on the war in Iraq, declaring in a newspaper opinion piece that he made "a mistake" in supporting the invasion.
"It was a mistake to vote for this war in 2002. I take responsibility for that mistake," Edwards wrote, in what will likely be seen as a gambit to reposition himself ahead of a 2008 presidential run.
He learned that little flip-flop play from the best of 'em.

UPDATE: 11/15/2005 - Jimmie over at the Sundries Shack has an excellent analysis on John Edwards' editorial, well worth the read! Hat-tip: the Anchoress.
