Edwards Out

John Edwards has dropped out of the presidential race. A bit of a surprise. I suspected he would stay in and earn a few delegates in the hopes of playing kingmaker at the Democratic convention. But I suppose he saw that he was unlikely to win enough to even do that. We shall see who he endorses.

I can’t say I’m sad to see Edwards go. Of all the major candidates of either party, he was my least favorite: a former ambulance chaser and economic populist whose entire campaign was built on negativity and divisive rhetoric about “two Americas.” Good riddance.
