America Breathes a Collective Sigh of Relief


Silky PonyThe prospect of an Edwards Presidency is now gone for good:

Former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina is dropping out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, two sources inside his campaign said Wednesday.

Edwards has told top advisers about his decision. It is expected he will announce it in a speech at 1 p.m. ET Wednesday in New Orleans, Louisiana.

An Edwards aide said the candidate was not getting the media attention he needed to get his message out and win delegates, especially with races coming up in 22 states next Tuesday.

Sayonara, Breck Girl. Spend more time with your hair stylists, and less time perusing the Communist Manifesto for campaign ideas.

Anything else I could say about this news would be fairly redundant. All right-thinking people are jumping for joy over this one.

Update (by Psycheout): Giuliani is also expected to drop out today and, like Sam Brownback, endorse McCain.

    Which leads to the question: Who will Mike Huckabee endorse after February 5, when it’s entirely clear he’s not going to get nominated?

  2. Sisyphus Says:

    Mike Huckabee should endorse the Brownback write-in campaign if he loses. But he’ll probably end up endorsing McCain, since you can’t endorse write-in campaigns on TV.
