Breaking News: Edwards Drops Out of Race... Obama/Edwards '08?


Edwards expected to drop out of race today
Presidential candidate steered his rivals toward progressive ideals

DENVER - Democrat John Edwards is exiting the presidential race Wednesday, ending a scrappy underdog bid in which he steered his rivals toward progressive ideals while grappling with family hardship that roused voters' sympathies but never diverted his campaign, according to The Associated Press and NBC News.
The two-time White House candidate notified a close circle of senior advisers that he planned to make the announcement at a 1 p.m. ET event in New Orleans that had been billed as a speech on poverty, according to two of his advisers. The decision came after Edwards lost the four states to hold nominating contests so far to rivals who stole the spotlight from the beginning — Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama. The former North Carolina senator will not immediately endorse either candidate in what is now a two-person race for the Democratic nomination, said one adviser, who spoke on a condition of anonymity in advance of the announcement.
I really liked Edwards the best out of the three. Hopefully Obama will extend a VP offer to him that he won't refuse. That'd be a nice ticket.

He's more fit for VP anyway. He reminds me a lot of Gore.
