Edwards to announce presidential bid from New Orleans...

Photo shows John Edwards shoveling with student volunteers in New Orleans Wednesday. Edwards is running for president for a second time, his campaign said yesterday. The announcement will be made today.

The choice of New Orleans to announce his presidential bid is not a surprise since Edwards will be running on the theme of "the two Americas." He will make addressing poverty one of his major campaign issues.
