Had John Edwards endorsed Obama prior to the North Carolina primary he could at least pretend he is still politically relevant by claiming that his endorsement gave Obama a big win there.
It’s obviously too late now for his endorsement to really matter- and I think he knows that.
Still- that didn’t stop him from going on Face the Nation this weekend and announcing that Obama is going to be our nominee:
“I think it is likely, certainly at this point, that Senator Obama will be the nominee. [S]he has to be really careful that she’s not damaging our prospects, the Democratic Party, and our cause, for the fall.”
