Edwards in Town

John Edwards, one of the 2008 candidates who has been totally eclipsed by the Barack Obama publicity juggernaut, will be in Manhattan this Thursday to “discuss his vision for America and its future.”

The informational get-together at the Essex House carries no cover charge, according to the invitation a reader sent us.

The event is being organized by Alex Forger of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy LLP and Michael Miller.

This seems to be a pattern of 2008 contenders rushing to New York to make a public impression before the new year, at which point someone (okay, a couple of people) might make it a little hard for anyone else to get any attention around here.
