EDWARDS DROPS OUT
John Edwards went back to New Orleans yesterday to announce that he was dropping out of the race for the Democratic nomination. We think he was a worthy contender, and he would have been an outstanding president. More than any of the other front-rank candidates, he represented the average American. He has not announced his support for any other candidate.
Some people might think we’re sucking up to the former North Carolina senator so he will throw his support to Democratic candidate Carl Perrin. That is not the case. Even though Perrin works for the same constituency as Edwards, the working men and women, the former English professor does not expect any quid pro quo from Edwards.
Nevertheless, if Edwards and Perrin worked together, you have to admit—they would have made a great team.
