An End to Poverty in 30 Years

Audio Listen to program (53:00s)

John Edwards
June 23, 2006
John Edwards didn't go back to his lucrative law practice after his unsuccessful vice presidential campaign. When his one term in the U.S. Senate ended, Edwards set up the Center on Poverty, Work and Opporunity at the University of North Carolina School of Law. Many consider Edwards to be a potential presidential candidate in 2008. In a June 22 speech at the National Press Club, he calls for a national goal to eliminate poverty in the U.S. within 30 years.
