Edwards to Drop Out
by

The pugilistic populist is hanging up his gloves. The obvious question is, who does it help? Under one school of thought, Edwards was splitting the working class white vote with Clinton, and thus helping Obama by being in the race. Under another, he was siphoning off some of the anti-Hillary vote. I think both lines of reasoning have some validity to them, but wouldn’t wager to guess which effect is more dominant. According to the article, Edwards has no immediate plans to issue an endorsement. My guess is that he’ll either endorse Obama or stay neutral.

I declared Edwards’s candidacy dead on arrival from the moment he entered the race, Shawn Macomber examined the invisible personality cult around him, while John Tabin and I chronicled the exploits of Edwards, the fighter.
