John Edwards to Endorse Obama

'Bout damn time. (In about 20 minutes.)

If he throws his 19(?) delegates behind Obama, then he will be approximately 120 delegates shy of the nomination with approximately 430 outstanding. That would mean he would need about 28% of the remaining delegates.

I don't put too much stock in the idea that Edwards will help Obama with the so-called "hard-working white voters" (I think that is ridiculously overstated anyway) but he might help the remaining superdelegates feel more comfortable endorsing Obama.

Not bad. (This will be over soon. Thank God.)

So Obama thinks that by parading yet another loser in the Democratic Nomination bid it will sway voters?
Not likely. What of the female voters who will now perceive that Hillary is being backstabbed left and right
by the loser contenders who are all being bribed and promised choice positions in the Obama regime.

Its just not going to fly.

Yea I totally agree. It's the good ol' boys again, with no PLANS to back up what they say they support. Senator Clinton has the plans and the know-how. When she wins the endorsement, she should have Ferraro as VP. Edwards is a dope.

Looks like Edwards held his endorsement til the last possible moment it would have some value for HIM. I am disappointed in both Edwards (who has been in as thick with the "old politics" as anyone else AND Gov. Richardson, who wouldn't have gotten any recent media time, had he not defected from the Clintons who, I understand, were very supportive of his political aspirations. Let's see what Kentucky does, or should they be dismissed by OB, like WV was.

I agree that Edwards saw his window closing to gain something from his endorsement so he jumped.

However, with all due respect to the rest of your comments, the race is in fact over for all intents and purposes (which is why Edwards endorsed).

I have no problem with Clinton playing out the string. At this point, it works in Obama's favor because the primaries are still going to happen and a lot of people will vote for Clinton whether she drops out or not. It'll look better if she's still actually in the race.

Regardless, Obama will be the nominee. Take a breath, come to terms with it and then decide if you'd really rather have McCain.

Having given this some thought, I guess we masses must remember that all of these players are POLITICIANS and, coming from the state of Huey P. Long, I think we might have used our contributions more wisely feeding the hungry in our communities, rather than financing multi-million dollar bids by most of these people who can't legislate a minute percentage of their agenda in congress. One America. Hope for one productive government, first.
I know this is rambling. Must be the lack of a college degree.
