December 28, 2006: Edwards Enters Race for Democratic Presidential Nomination (

  • Since the 2004 campaign, Edwards has taken steps to address that issue. On the signal foreign policy issue of the day, he has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s handling of the war in Iraq. He also has sought to draw attention to an overseas crisis that is far less visible to the American people: ongoing civil strife in Uganda. He edited the recently released book “Home: The Blueprints of Our Lives,” which includes reflections from politicians, actors and others on their childhood residences, with the proceeds dedicated to relief efforts in Uganda.
