The Washington Post's Melinda Henneberger has a great column up today about the issue that dare not speak its name in this campaign - poverty. Henneberger attended an event this past Sunday at Catholic University, co-sponsored by CUA's on-campus think tank, the Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies, where I am a visiting fellow, and the American Jewish Committee. NCR's Jerry Filteau covered the event and will be filing a report. As Henneberger notes, it is kind of scary when one finds oneself missing John Edwards, the last candidate to make poverty a central theme of his campaign effort.
