Former North Carolina U.S. Senator John Edwards is set to withdraw his candidacy for President of the United States after disappointing finishes in all of the early contests. Edwards was the first Democrat to enter the race in December of 2006, and entered a leading contender for the nomination following a previous presidential campaign, and being the Democrats's 2004 Vice Presidential Candidate. Edwards finished 2nd in Iowa and needed a win there, and finished no better fir the rest of the campaign. Many suspected he would stay in until the convention to be the King or Queen maker. Edwards isn't endorsing any candidate at the moment, and probably won't for awhile, but I suspect he leans towards Obama.
