John Edwards, displaying the leadership voters soundly rejected him for, has finally come out and endorsed Barack Obama for President, now that Obama is pretty much the nominee. How brave of Edwards to come out now that the race is essentially over and throw his support behind the winner.
Unfortunately for everyone involved, Edwards’ 5 supporters had forgotten he had run this year and have already joined the Gravel campaign. MSNBC spent the day covering this story as though JFK had come back from the dead and blessed Obama.
After the endorsement speech Edwards, champion of the poor, went back to the biggest house in North Carolina, turned on the central air and figuring out who to sue to cover his campaign debts.
