John Edwards, the son of a mill worker and a teacher, a former Senator from the then red but turning blue State of North Carolina, a white Christian with blue collar roots, acknowledge that he voted for Barack Obama in this past Tuesday's election in North Carolina.
Edwards has also basically endorsed Barack Obama as Obama, for the first time, leads among superdelegates. That lead will widen as Obama has won 32 of 48 contests thus far, in states as "white" as Wyoming, Vermont, Idaho, Nebraska, Kansas, and Utah. Obama has also won big states (Illinois, Georgia, North Carolina, Missouri, Virginia), swing states (Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Colorado, Virginia) and every kind of state imaginable.
Edwards endorsement dispels the myth that Obama can't attract what the media is derisively and divisively attempting to label as "low class, uneducated whites." To me these labels are BS. People work hard regardless of education level and skin color and these labels are ridiculous and unnecessary.
But thank you John Edwards for doing the right thing. The last thing this country needs is a 3rd Bush term and I knew I could count on John Edwards not being an angry bitter elf who tries to sink a boat merely because his first choice (himself) did not get his way.
