Senator Snubs Edwards Ahead of South Carolina

Kerry Hearts Obama

John Kerry shows no love for former political partner John Edwards this election season.

Despite the fact that the men ran for the White House together in 2004, Kerry decided to throw his weight behind Barack Obama:

Kerry, a senator from Massachusetts, planned to announce his support Thursday at a rally with Obama at the College of Charleston, arguing that the Illinois senator can best unite the country, said a Democrat familiar with the decision. Kerry was timing his announcement before South Carolina’s Jan. 26 primary, a contest that has taken on extra importance for Obama after Hillary Rodham Clinton beat him in New Hampshire.

Edwards took the high road, saying that the American nation is “stronger” because of Kerry’ work. He also says, “When we were running against each other and on the same ticket, John and I agreed on many issues.” Not anymore!
