Edwards made an incredibly gracious comment about Sen. Clinton as he began his remarks:
"It is very very hard to get up every day and do what she's done. It is hard to get out there and fight and speak up when the odds turn against you. What she has shown is strength and character and what drives her is something that each and every one of us should appreciate. She cares about working people...men and women in Iraq...she is a woman made of steel and she is a leader in this country not because of her husband but because of what she has done...When this nomination battle is over, brothers and sisters, we must come together as Democrats and in the fall stand up for the future of America to make America better. We are a stronger party because Hillary Clinton is a Democrat...and we will have a stronger presidential nominee in the fall because of her work."So true. And as to be expected, the Obama crowd booed. That "uniter" thing doesn't seem to be working.
Elizabeth Edwards has been critical of Obama's health care policy, saying that Sen. Clinton has the better plan. Her absents today from the announcement seems to send a clear message that she is not on board with Obama. I knew I liked her for more than one reason!
