This just in from CNN:

edwards.jpgFormer Sen. John Edwards is dropping out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, CNN has learned.

Edwards has told top advisers about his decision. It is expected he will announce it at a speech in New Orleans, Louisiana, at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Edwards had amassed 26 delegates in the race for the Democratic nomination.

New Orleans is the same city in which Edwards declared his run to be the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee.

Edwards’ campaign Web site said he was to deliver an address on poverty and work on a Habitat for Humanity project in New Orleans on Wednesday.

Edwards has trailed former first lady Hillary Clinton and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in the early primaries, including a third-place finish in Tuesday’s Florida primary, with 14 percent of the votes. He also came in third in key races in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

An Edwards aide said that he does not plan to endorse either Clinton or Obama, at this time, but he may do so in the future.

And then there were two. Well, three if you count Mike Gravel.

    Do you want to believe in this ill dressed charlatan politician.

    I want you to ponder this for a few days…

    1)She didn’t cry at the first ceremony for the World Trade Center. when everyone else did, she looked down at the ground.

    2)She didn’t cry when she went past the dead Marines caskets from Iraq when the families did. She shook hands and showed no empathy at all.

    3)She didn’t even show ANY emotion publicly when her husband was caught in his Presidential adultery life style. Not even toward the black dress.

    And now you want me to believe she was asked a question when she was the president of her college debate team, and now she crying.

    Am sorry either you are not a woman or you still asleep at the wheel. She has fooled millions so far including you.
