Edwards won’t run for VP
This is kind of bumming me out:
After his keynote speech at CTIA, the annual U.S. wireless industry showcase, Edwards was asked in a question-and-answer session if he would accept the nomination for vice president.
“No,” said Edwards, who also declined to say whether he would endorse Clinton or Obama.
I mean, Edwards probably has good reason not to be a running-mate, not the least of which is that he lost in 2004. Perhaps he’s bitter about some attacks he received from the Obama and Hillary camp (though I can’t think of any that were too below-the-belt), or maybe he thinks he can serve the public better in some other role. But I really hoped that my primary pick for president might at least wind up buddy-buddying with Obama when he wins the presidency in November. We need someone who at least speaks the language of populism during these despicable times for working Americans.
