Just when it seemed the Democrats' nomination fight couldn't have become any more repulsive: it did. The former senator from North Carolina, John Edwards, ran onto the stage, hugging, grinning and waving, totally eclipsing the man he was supposedly there to support.
Please recall the spectacle of Edwards' "hugging, grinning and waving" when he was running as the Democratic vice presidential candidate. He is a study in insincerity and (unfortunately for him) transparency. Under that $400 haircut the wheels are turning.
He's waited to be reasonably sure who will win the nomination, then support him or her in the hopes of being selected for the vice presidential candidacy.
If that fails, he will stand by while Sen. Hillary Clinton rips her party apart at the convention, and he will prance on stage, hugging, grinning and waving, ostensibly to save the Democrats' day.
Edwards' giddy performance in his public endorsement of Barak Obama made it quite obvious that (no matter what one might think of Obama's views) Obama is 10 times the man Edwards will ever be.
