Edwards Out But Why?January 30, 2008 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
I’m sort of surprised that John Edwards decided to bow out. The cynic in me thinks there is more here than meets the eye as that’s usually going on with politicians. We see one thing, but other stuff is going on as well.
You never know.
In all honesty, I don’t know why he didn’t do any better. I was leaning heavily toward voting for him even though I knew he wasn’t going to get the stage in Denver.I thought he’d stick around and gather up a smattering of delegates and start brokering deals.
That’s how it’s usually done. Politicians wheel and deal.
I’m sort of surprised that Edwards didn’t do that. Or did we? Once again, you never know.
And that cynic is me is asking “What happened?” Because I think something did. Either personal or a deal down the line perhaps?
A member of my staff is a HUGE Edwards supporter and she is somewhat heartbroken although she is a realist as well. She liked him and every day I would get an update on him from her, something I rather enjoyed over coffee each morning. It’s the enthusiasm that she shared that brightened my morning. I wish I could have 1/4th of her energy and passion about this race, but I don’t.
And now we are down to four choices. Two republicans, two democrats…
It is what it is.
