*BREAKING* John Edwards to endorse Obama at 6:20pm EST
« on: May 14, 2008, 06:01:05 PM »
source

A Democratic source tells CBS News that former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards will endorse Sen. Barack Obama on Wednesday night.

It's a major boost from a former presidential rival as Obama tries to shrug off Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is determined to press ahead.

The event will take place in Grand Rapid, Mich., at 6:20 p.m. ET.

The endorsement comes the day after Clinton defeated Obama by more than 2-to-1 in West Virginia. The loss highlighted Obama's work to win over the "Hillary Democrats" - white, working-class voters who also supported Edwards in large numbers before he exited the race.

"This is a major blow to Hillary Clintonís hopes of winning over the vast majority of superdelegates she would need to stake a claim on the nomination," said CBSNews.com senior political editor Vaughn Ververs. "In the wake of her 40-point win in West Virginia, Clinton has made a direct appeal to party leaders to at least stop and consider their choice. Having a big name still on the sidelines so quickly ignore that plea is a sign itís having little impact."

Edwards, a former North Carolina senator and the 2004 vice presidential nominee, dropped out of the race in late January. He is not a Democratic superdelegate.

Both Obama and Clinton immediately asked Edwards for his endorsement, but he stayed mum for more than four months. A person close to Edwards, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he wanted to get involved now to begin unifying the party. Obama also signed on to Edwards' poverty initiative, which was a major cause for Edwards in his campaign and since he left.

When he made his decision, Edwards didn't even tell many of his former top advisers because he wanted to make sure that he personally talked to Clinton to give her the news, said the person close to him. Edwards' wife, Elizabeth, who has spoken favorably about Clinton's health care plan, did not travel with him to Michigan and is not part of the endorsement.

Well, this should help Obama even more.  Good.
