Even though her husband’s race for the Presidency is over, Elizabeth is not resting her political voice. She’s joined the progressive think tank Center for American Politics as a senior fellow on health care issues. Plus, she won’t be far from the blogosphere — she’ll be contributing to the CAP blog, Wonk Room, as well.
And it’s no secret that Elizabeth Edwards is committed to the cause of universal health care, but I’m so excited that she has taken on this role to keep the issue in the public conversation.
The CAP is based in Washington, D.C., so I’m sensing there may be a new power couple in town! Imagine what Elizabeth and John Edwards can do for this country as passionate advocates for universal health care and ending poverty even though they won’t be living in the White House.
I’m thinking they may be able to get even more done without moving into that big, white house. But then again, there’s still a chance John Edwards could have an office in a new Democratic administration, even though it’s not shaped like an oval.
Either way, the Edwards aren’t going off the political stage, and that can only be a good thing for the Democrats.
And Elizabeth, please feel free to stop by Chez PunditMom for some coffee and political talk any time you’re in town. I’m not that far from your new office!
When Joanne isn’t straightening up her kitchen just in case Elizabeth Edwards stops by, you can find her thinking of new ways to go all political over at MOMocrats.
