Edwards to drop out? http://www.modbee.com/24hour/opinions/story/897224p-6249784c.html
So who among the nine candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination will be the first to drop out? Don't be surprised if it's Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina.
Edwards is telegenic, a smooth talker, and he's raised a bunch of dough. But he's been lost amid better-known candidates like Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, as well as those who have created a buzz, like former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.
Edwards' Senate seat is up in 2004, so he could opt to return to the upper chamber and make a White House play later.
If he drops out, will he endorse Dean or Kerry? Discuss...

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
