The scoop from Washington

Edwards to endorse Obama. To appear with him in Grand Rapids.

| 4 Comments

WASHINGTON--The Obama campaign confirmed that former presidential candidate John Edwards is endorsing Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) at a Wednesday night rally in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Edwards, a former North Carolina senator, appears with Obama in a key swing state involved in a dispute over whether their delegates will be seated at the Democratic National Convention. Edwards nod comes after Obama beat Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in the North Carolina primary. Edwards backing is seen as helping Obama close the deal with wavering superdelegates. Edwards was one of the bigger catches and it comes after a humiliating loss to Clinton in the West Virginia primary--where Edwards got seven percent of the vote.

Good.
Get people used to veep and Edwards' name.
Hillary will no doubt prefer having Edwards on the ticket.
Methinks the Obamas are about to become HUGE liabilities for the ticket.

Edwards couldn't carry his own state when he ran, he even made fun of John Kerry's campaign which he was a part of ! He's just an opportunist.

Kerry's campaign deserved to be ridiculed, Robert. Did you see any of those rallies? Did you notice that Kerry ALLOWED himself to be swiftboated? Did you notice the guy got BACK on his WORD not to back down if the election was again stolen? Edwards fought for every damn thing he's gotten and he fought BAD PEOPLE to get his money.
Wish he were the top of the ticket. Edwards/Obama woulda kicked butt.
