John Edwards, you ran a good campaign. We’ll miss your insight. You pushed Clinton and Obama to be more inclusive, to think about Joe America. You’re a great man.
According to an NYTimes article, he called Clinton and Obama, individually, when he was thinking about the end of his campaign. He made them promise to end poverty in their presidencies. I suppose they both agreed, otherwise he would have stayed on the campaign trail. For your sake and the hundreds of people sleeping under the bridge in New Orleans that they keep their word. When has a politician ever done that?
It’s actually kind of ironic that I stayed up so late writing this long defense for Mr. Edwards only to wake up the next day at noon, turn on the radio, to find he’s dropping out of the race.
We have an American House to rebuild.
