The argument on where John Edwards should set up his campaign headquarters is not of great importance if one has no chance of being nominated. The real purpose is where he can find the most chance of political donation with the lowest rental overhead. Donation is everything to a slick operator like Edwards. For you see my fellow Americans, running for President, or most every political office, gives one the opportunity for creative accounting, resulting in “residue bottom lines to keep.” It is after all, a part of the entertainment industry. Actually, it is the entertainment industry; including all its free press coverage. If anyone has seen “The Producers” a play designed around the scheme to collect funding for a disastrous musical planned to fail, you will begin to understand the Producer Edwards. The main purpose in running is to cash in under the decoy of public service. Who can squawk when he fails? Everyone in the campaign wins cash. The ‘residue’ is the treasure at the end of the rainbow. That volunteer not paid, that is “Useful Idiots” as Vladimir Lenin would call them, also win, because their idolatry glands flowed for a year, while their parents paid their rent. However if Edwards really wanted a blaring limelight in the press and trump Obama and Evita, oops I meant Hillary, he could transfer his Chapel Hill, North Carolina Headquarters to Harlem, in Manhattan, New York, New York. Becoming the second black nominee would have to be balanced by his accountant regarding the ‘residue’ profit margin countered by uptown rent.
