Edwards Adds Staff, Reshuffles Roles
John Edwards is reshuffling the ranks of his top staff, adding two prominent Democratic operatives as senior advisers and shifting some responsibilities from campaign manager David Bonior.

Paul Blank and Chris Kofinis, leaders of the labor-backed anti-Wal-Mart effort ``Wake Up Wal-Mart,'' were expected to join the Edwards campaign as early as next week. Blank would take over day-to-day campaign operations, while Kofinis would serve as communications director. [...]

Blank was political director for Howard Dean's 2004 presidential effort and remains close to former Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi...Bonior, a former Michigan congressman, would retain the title of campaign manager but step up his role as public spokesman for the campaign. He's also expected to travel extensively with Edwards. [...]

Top Edwards strategist Jonathan Prince said staff changes reflected the campaign's continued growth and shouldn't be taken as a sign that anything was amiss.

Maybe so, but we're thinking it anyway.

If I'd only realized that! I would have devoted an entire DAY to thoroughly analyzing the deep and meaningful words of the stylist, the strands themselves, and hold an open thread on whether Edwards should use organic shampoo, start highlighting, and how all of this affects the campaign.

I was remiss.

I repent.
