13. John Edwards is in the same position as the rest of us.
He has to decide who to endorse/support out of the two remaining, second best, candidates we have.

Hillary and Barack are both less progressive than John, so it's going to be a stretch for him to endorse either one of them. So, does he take the path of "I must not allow a Republican in the White House, therefore I support the Democratic nominee even though I disagree with them?"

Or does he determine that Hillary is in a better position to weather the GOP storm that will attack the Dem nominee?

Or does he go with Barack's "change" message, even though there are many doubts as to whether he can really do as he says?

Regardless of what John may or may not do, it will be a compromise for him, and that is not a reflection of his being genuine in any way. He's making the best educated decision he can given the circumstances, and I think it's hard to second guess any eventual endorsement, and there may not be one for all we know. :shrug:
