CNN is reporting that John Edwards will officially bow out of the race today.
Ironically, CNN is giving Edwards more coverage now than they have over the previous six months. As an astute Eschaton commenter noted, “maybe he should drop out every day.” Heh.
I am supremely sorry to see Edwards gone. I liked his populist ideas, and with him in the race I think he effectively kept Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on the progressive tact.
TPM says Edwards won’t endorse anyone for now, but might before the Feb. 5 primaries.
