Obama praises Edwards dropping out...

It's hard to not feel just a tad of bitterness given Edward's promise to not drop out, however reading Obama praise Edwards for dropping out when the reality is neither Obama or Clinton acknowledged the Edwards campaign (along with most of the media) and it's hoped by the Obama camp that the votes that would go to Edwards will go to Obama makes it seem less than sincere.

I do know that not all Edwards voters will go to Obama, in fact in talking with many of them that I know I'd say that it appears that 75% will select Clinton over Obama because of the continuing electability concerns that have not been addressed when this goes beyond a primary contest.

Is the statement of "As Ohio goes so goes the nation" true remains to be seen in this situation. I do also know many disappointed Edwards supporters are hoping that he does not endorse either candidate but that he especially not endorse Obama. For many that would be too much to take...
