Edwards among Harvard Institute of Politics visiting fellows

Democratic vice presidential candidate and former senator John Edwards will be among visiting fellows at Harvard University's Institute of Politics this spring, the school announced Wednesday.

Edwards, 51, of North Carolina, ran for the Democratic nomination for president before being chosen as U.S. Sen. John Kerry's running mate last year.He will join U.S. Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., and Michael Deaver, international vice chairman for Edelman Worldwide and former deputy chief of staff to President Ronald Reagan.

The schedule for the fellows calls for Edwards to visit on April 13, Kolbe from March 7 to March 8 and Deaver sometime in April, said officials at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Typically, visiting fellows meet with various student groups to discuss topical issues and their experiences in public and political service; give a public address in the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum; and participate in a public policy class with students and Kennedy School of Government faculty.
