The AP is reporting that John Edwards will be dropping out of the Presidential race. Edwards will formally announce his withdrawal at 1 p.m. EST in New Orleans, a campaign official said.

The two-time White House candidate notified a close circle of senior advisers that he planned to make the announcement at a 1 p.m. EST event in New Orleans that had been billed as a speech on poverty, according to two of his advisers. The decision came after Edwards lost the four states to hold nominating contests so far to rivals who stole the spotlight from the beginning—Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.

The former North Carolina senator will not immediately endorse either candidate in what is now a two-person race for the Democratic nomination, said one adviser, who spoke on a condition of anonymity in advance of the announcement.

Thank god America won’t be forced to listen to anymore nonsense out of John Edwards. He is without a doubt the phoniest candidate to run for President in years.

His “Two America’s” speech is a load of crap. To listen to John Edwards you would think most Americans are destitute and homeless. The only thing John Edwards did was run around the country pandering to far-left organizations and unions.

There’s just something about a guy who lives in a 30,000 sq. ft. home and gets $500 haircuts going on so called “poverty tours” that just rings hollow.

I have no problem with the Senator being a rich man. It’s when a rich man tells me that the same system that enabled him to become rich is now suddenly corrupt, broken, and rigged. Strange how it only broke after he made his fortune.

If John Edwards wants to solve poverty he should start with the trailer park across the street from his mansion. His own neighbors have expressed nothing but contempt for him and say he has never even said hello.

The truth is that John Edwards is no great truth teller. He’s just a seasoned trial lawyer who uses words that work. He knows exactly what to say to make a left-wingers go weak in the knees.

In short, you can sum up the John Edwards candidacy by saying he ran a campaign that was long on left-wing propaganda and short on facts.
