And they’ve both misgauged which way the wind is blowing.
Edwards? Looks like he had at least two reasons to endorse Obama today: He’s more than likely cut a deal for the Vice-Presidential spot and he’s angling for some cash for one of his pet projects. Meanwhile, thanks to Edwards, Sir Talks-A-Lot gets to hijack the media on what would have been a big night for Clinton.
And here’s a laughable quote:
Matt Bennett, a former Clinton Administration official, described Edwards as the “troubadour of the working class” and said the North Carolina senator’s endorsement of Obama makes it “tougher for Clinton to make the case that working class Democrats can’t [or] won’t support Obama.”
Edwards is a troubadour? That’s hysterical. The media ignored him and he caved. The media have savaged Clinton and she’s flourished.
