Edwards Drops Out, as does Guiliani

John Edwards is ending his campaign. I think it's too bad, ina way. His policy proposals were always the most complete and rigorous. His populism, i.e., support for those who the poorest and most disadvantaged, resonates with me, particularly given the Scripture's clear preferential option for the poor. If he had done well in SC, I might have considered him next Tuesday.

As predicted, Rudy is dropping out, too. So it's essentially Clinton or Obama, McCain or Romney. I predict McCain will be the GOP nominee (he should have been 8 years ago, and the country would have been in far better shape). I think he will be tough to beat in this election cycle.

I am really sorry to hear Edwards dropped out, because I was a supporter and was planning to vote for him in the Arizona primary. But it is realistic of him. Perhaps he can team up with the prospective Democratic candidate.

It seemed all along that the media just liked to focus on the candidates who were other than the usual white male with a southern accent.

Still I wish the best for whomever does get the nomination and that we have a Democrat in the White House in 2009.

Peace and Love to all
