John Edwards ends campaign

January 30, 2008

“I began my presidential campaign here to remind the country that we, as citizens and as a government, have a moral responsibility to each other, and what we do together matters. We must do better, if we want to live up to the great promise of this country that we all love so much.

“It is appropriate that I come here today. It’s time for me to step aside so that history can blaze its path. We do not know who will take the final steps to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but what we do know is that our Democratic Party will make history. We will be strong, we will be unified, and with our convictions and a little backbone we will take back the White House in November and we’ll create hope and opportunity for this country.”

Analysis:  John Edwards was the first candidate to announce his bid for the presidency in 2008.  He did so on YouTube first, while working to rebuild New Orleans–with his own hands.  Below is that video.  Edwards provided a strong voice for the poor of this country and took a courageous stand on not receiving money from lobbyists.  My guess is that the timing of his departure — before Super Tuesday next week –may be intended to help Barack Obama do better against Hillary Clinton.
