Labor of love

Betty Cracker on John Edwards dropping out of the presidential race:

Notice how [Hillary Clinton] appeals to Edwards’ supporters, not to Edwards himself. Edwards will endorse Obama—soon—and probably in exchange for the AG spot should Obama win the presidency. The only question is, will it matter.

I believe Betty’s right about the endorsement and I agree that Obama will probably offer him a plum role in his admin (if he hasn’t already), but I think telling Edwards he’ll empower him to be the most influential and important Secretary of Labor ever might be the best angle for both of them. I mean that with all sincerity.  Edwards could turn that mostly ceremonial and lackluster position into something monumental. It seems like a logical fit to me.

Great point—that would be a nice role for Edwards and would neatly dovetail with his working class pitch.
