Default Do you think Edwards endorsed Obama for the VP seat?

I was wondering what others thought about this.

Noooooo......Hillary is just too annoying. I can't think of any prominent figure wanting to endorse her bet yet a sore loser.

C'mon now. It's kind of obvious to most people who is going to be the nominee so he really didn't do anything special. He just waited until it was obvious and endorsed the presumptive nominee. Makes him look good and he didn't stab anyone in the back by doing it too soon.

Edwards already stated that he is not interested in the VP position. I think Richardson would be a good choice though.

Obama should also consider Hagel or Chafee.

I support Hillary Clinton
I hope Hillary Clinton gets the nomination, but if Barack Obama does I dont know how strong of a ticket John Edwards and Barack Obama would be. Many would see them as very young, and would have questions about sitting them in office.
Woot Hillary

So what are you saying? People have to be over 60 to be in the
White House.

I would agree with this. Edwards is a very disingenuious ambulance chaser. This makes him look good, that's all.

He may get the AG spot. How 'bout them ambulance chasing apples?? Or he could opt for a Supreme Court Justice spot eh???

It will be Richardson.
