John Edwards is not expected to endorse any candidate today when he officially announces his withdrawal as a candidate.

He has repeatedly insisted that his plans were always to stay in the campaign until at least 'Super Tuesday'. So it could be said that todays announcement comes as a bit of a surprise. Many pundits have stated that they believed his intention was to stay in thru Feb 6 so that he could collect just enough delegates to become in effect a 'kingmaker' at the convention.

Was a deal made last night? What caused this sudden change? While least nights vote in Florida was symbolic only, he did get enough votes (approx 15%) to leave him in a position as 'kingmaker' if he had stayed in.

Maybe he'll be the v.p. candidate, as he was in 2004. Or maybe he's looking towards a key position in a Democratic administration. I don't think we've heard the last of him. Even at third place he was a strong candidate.
