  • 5/14/08 John Edwards Endorses Obama

    Barack Obama's campaign is touting a "major endorsement" of his candidacy tonight and the endorser is former Sen. John Edwards, according to sources close to the former North Carolina senator and the Obama campaign.

    Mr. Edwards, who dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination Jan. 30, placed second in the Iowa caucuses in early January and was a favorite of the party's liberal wing. In West Virginia, where he appeared on the ballot, and Sen. Hillary Clinton won in stunning fashion, Mr. Edwards garnered 7% of the vote -- a surprise for a candidate who dropped out of the race before "Super Tuesday" voting in early February.

    Campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Mr. Edwards will join Sen. Obama at his Grand Rapids, Mich., rally where he will announce his endorsement.

    Mr. Edwards could give a boost to Obama's candidacy by attracting the exact sort of voter that has been Sen. Clinton's strength -- white, working-class voters from rust-belt states who are drawn to a populist political philosophy but have mostly rejected the senator from Illinois. Sen. Clinton, vastly outgunned in delegate count and popular vote by Sen. Obama has nonetheless kept her candidacy alive by arguing -- somewhat successfully -- that such voters will be crucial in November.

    Mr. Edwards previously declined to back either candidate, both of whom courted his endorsement and promised to advocate for antipoverty issues he has long championed. More recently, he hinted that he might take sides soon.

    People close to Mr. Edwards have said that he has found deep flaws in both Sens. Clinton and Obama -- Sen. Obama because he lacked the fire to wage war against special interests in Washington, and Sen. Clinton because she takes money from lobbyists and remains firmly part of the beltway aristocracy, which he considers to be the problem with American politics.

          Most likely he will lose big in Kentucky. But also win big in Oregon the same day.

            Lol... Edwards received 7% of the votes even though he's clearly out of the race. Just goes to show that her victory means shit. I've been saying it since Edwards (my initial choice) that an Obama/Edwards ticket has the best chances of defeating McCain/whoever. Obama/Edwards '08.

                    He's said he's not going to run as VP on anyone's ticket again, just like Gore said he wouldn't run for president. IMO Edwards or Gore would be better choices then obama or hillary. Obama > kerry at least.

                              a month is "old"? Gore said he wasn't going to run again 2 years ago and did he run?

                              mark my words: It's not going to happen.
