North Carolina Blue

As I was watching tonight’s Democratic presidential candidate debate in Nevada (that would be the state, not the town in Iowa that’s pronounced nuh-VAY-duh) I was struck anew by the, well, new color of John Edwards’ tie. Edwards favored ties the color of "North Carolina blue" when he campaigned in Iowa.  Lately, though, that color has been missing when I’ve caught Edwards on the telly and he’s been wearing orange/red ties.

The next big test for Edwards is in his homestate of South Carolina.  Sportsfans likely know the South Carolina Gamecocks’ colors are garnet and black.  Clemson’s colors are orange and purple.  North Carolina State’s colors are red and white.  Edwards got his undergrad degree from NC State, but his law degree from the University of North Carolina and he is a big Tar Heel fan.
