Blogger Robert Scoble apparently has been enlisted by John Edwards' campaign to help announce the former VP hopeful's presidential bid in New Orleans tomorrow. He confirms on his blog that is where he is headed, but it is not clear if he is being paid by the Edwards campaign or is simply covering the event. (Update: The trip is legit. He says he is just covering the event and paying his own way).
Is this the triumph of "you politics", or the age-old political art of embracing those with influence? (I guess Edwards is going for the geek vote).
