Edwards to Endorse Obama
It’s nice timing for Obama — a day after Hillary Clinton trounced him in West Virginia. And the setting is good, too, as Obama tries to shore up support in a swing state loaded with the kind of Reagan Democrats who really might pay attention to what Edwards has to say. It’s also an early delivery from Obama on his campaign’s promise to work hard in Michigan, even as the state’s Democratic party tries to sort out how to handle its disputed delegates.
It’s nice timing for Edwards, too. His name was on the ballot in West Virginia, and he got 7 percent of the vote — a good moment to weigh in on the Obama/Clinton battle.
One thing that isn’t clear: will it help speed Hillary Clinton’s departure from the race?
