John Edwards to Quit Presidential Race

John Edwards to Quit Presidential Race

There are 2 comments on the story from Jan 30, 2008, titled John Edwards to Quit Presidential Race. In it, reports that:

John Edwards will end his presidential bid today, a source close to the Edwards campaign confirmed, effectively narrowing the Democratic field to two contenders less than a week before the Super Tuesday round of primaries.

The former North Carolina senator is scheduled to speak in New Orleans this afternoon, an appearance originally billed as an anti-poverty speech but now expected to serve as the platform for ending a White House run that has been five years in the making.

It breaks my heart to see him pull out of the presidential race as he seems to have been the only democratic candidate that cares about people and the situation surrounding the world today. As far as voting for a democratic thats the fartherest thing from my intentions now. And what nerve for Obama to ask for his delegates. John Edwards left the race he needs to take the delegates with him and not hand them over to either Clinton or Obama...

I am upset about Edwards bailing out and he was not even my first choice (Kucinich!)- but I am so angry/disappointed about the electoral process in this country! Why don't we as citizens get the opportunity to select (on Super Tuesday) a candidate of our choice from a LARGER group of candidates. I mean the only choices we have are Hilary or Obama? Please!!! What a narrow selection! I hate to be negative but the chances of a woman or an African-American are slim. I bet we will go Republican for another 8 years! I've had it! I need to vent, am I the only person in the US who thinks this is not right???????
