Barack Obama has released a statement in regards to John Edwards quitting his bid for the White House.
“John Edwards has spent a lifetime fighting to give voice to the voiceless and hope to the struggling, even when it wasn’t popular to do or covered in the news. At a time when our politics is too focused on who’s up and who’s down, he made a nation focus again on who matters – the New Orleans child without a home, the West Virginia miner without a job, the families who live in that other America that is not seen or heard or talked about by our leaders in Washington.
“John and Elizabeth Edwards have always believed deeply that we can change this – that two Americans can become one, and that our country can rally around this common purpose. So while his campaign may end today, the cause of their lives endures for all of us who still believe that we can achieve that dream of one America.
Sounds like someone is sucking up for some endorsement love doesn’t it?
UPDATE: Apparently the Obama Campaign isn’t alone in beating down Edwards’ door for an endorsement. There has got to be some serious gold plated kneepads being put on over at the campaign headquarters of both Clinton and Obama.
