DENVER (AP) – Democrat John Edwards is exiting the presidential race Wednesday, ending a scrappy underdog bid in which he steered his rivals toward progressive ideals while grappling with family hardship that roused voters’ sympathies but never diverted his campaign, The Associated Press has learned.

So long John and thanks for all the fish, as the dolphins say. There’s no mistaking in which one of his “two Americas” he lives and will continue to live without doing very much to help the “other America” aside from being a blow-dried Elmer Gantry. I suppose each party has to have one of those, though.

It’s tough to say where he’ll end up – probably the VP spot in one campaign or the other. Again.

He’s definitely not done with national politics, even in this election. There’s always a place in the Democratic party for a pretty but vacant preacher of populism and the gentle fascism of elites making our every decision for our own good. Besides, would you fade quietly into the background, if you got that sort of fawning write-up from the AP?
