According to CNN, Senator John Edwards is dropping out of the presidential race. It was an uphill struggle from the beginning, and he fought hard just to stay in the race this long. As he was just in Missouri campaigning hard, and field staff just arrived to help get out the vote, this is a total surprise to me. I hope and pray that everything is well with Elizabeth, and that this decision to end the campaign had nothing to do with a change in her health.

Consider this an open thread.
