Cribs + ‘Two Americas’ = John Edwards’ New Book

November 16th, 2006 by Larry Smith

Who knew? John Edwards put his “two Americas” mouth where his publisher’s money is. So I learned via Jon Stewart’s interview with Edwards, who put together a new book, home.jpgHome: The Blueprints of Our Lives, stories from 60 people, in the words of the editor John Edwards, “some famous, some not” about the homes they grew up in. It’s a little hokey, especially with little John E. on the cover, but we like it (especially with stories from Mario Batali and John Mellencamp, who was born in a small town).

Politics, On the Side: Jon tried to get John to announce he was running for prez in 2008. Edwards wouldn’t bite, but did suggest that there was an exciting situation on his site, Stewart’s response: “Dude, do you have a shower webcam?”

Here’s an idea: Jon Stewart for press secretary. Let’s go to the video.
