Edwards And Giuliani Drop Out of Presidential Race

Former Senator John Edwards, D-N.C., surrounded by his wife Elizabeth and his three children, announced Wednesday his presidential bid has come to an end.
"It's time for me to step aside so that history can blaze it's path," Edwards said in New Orleans on the site of a Habitat for Humanity home-building project.

Once the front-runner himself, Giuliani decided to abandon the race after a dismal performance in Tuesday's Florida primary, a contest on which he had bet his political fortune. Instead, McCain won and Giuliani came in a distant third.
Giuliani recalled he had said in an earlier debate that McCain would be his choice for president if he were not running himself.
"If I'd endorsed anyone else, you would say I was flip-flopping," he said, mentioning an oft-repeated criticism of McCain's chief rival, Mitt Romney.

I really liked the ideas Edwards espoused.
