John Edwards announced his endorsement today for Obama in Michigan.
Edwards started off with “the question is what am I doing here?” and later said that voters have “made their choices and so I have I” :). He went to say that “There is one man that believes it is time to make one America, not two, and that man is Barack Obama”.
I have to give credit to Edwards for talking about Clinton’s strengths as well, even though at times he seemed to go on and on about it. Clinton earlier said she didn’t “believe in quitting”, but come on – there’s an extent to that. I am not a quitter either, but I wouldn’t do something that would get in the way of someone else doing something.
What struck me was that Elizabeth Edwards was not present as John Edwards announced his endorsement, and we know she’s a supporter of Clinton, so that was definitely interesting.
