Well, Edwards is out. Too bad, I really liked what he had to say.

Granted, the system would have probably thwarted him at every turn, but he really did seem to be about populism and the people. Sure, that may have been a cynical ploy to secure votes, but I’ll take that kind of cynicism over most other types.

Update: Crooks & Liars has the transcript of Edward’s bowing out speech.

My only hope is that we get him in as Attorney General. I’d really like to see Bill Richardson as the Secretary of State, and I wouldn’t mind seeing Kathleen Sebelius in as V.P. (I used to babysit for her, so I may be biased in this pick).

Totally O/T, but The Onion has a totally crude, totally hilarious message from Jimmy Carter:

I Got What America Needs Right Here
