John Kerry, snubbing (but as nicely as can be imagined) his former running mate John Edwards, is aboard the Obama Express. He has endorsed Barack while at the same time saying that any one of the candidates would make a great president. Very eloquent, very tactful.
Still....ouch! Dat's gotta hoit. Edwards, for his part, issued an equally magnanimous statement so everyone, so far, is playing nice.
One could begin to worry that Kerry's endorsement may not mean all that much (anyone out there thinking "Hmmm, John likes him...oh, what the heck. I'm aboard!"), but it's better than a kick in the teeth.
In the meantime, Richardson is set to throw in the towel (very possible running mate material in this guy, everybody) and the media is still mulling over the "Did Hillary's complete breakdown in New Hampshire give her the win?" question which is, as I've pointed out (a) completely overblown and (b) like, totally a few days old.
Catch up, people! That was two news cycles ago!
