THE LAST METROSEXUAL:

Edwards to drop out of presidential race (NEDRA PICKLER, 1/30/08, Associated Press)

Democrat John Edwards is exiting the presidential race today, ending a scrappy underdog bid in which he steered his rivals toward progressive ideals while grappling with family hardship that roused voter's sympathies but never diverted his campaign, The Associated Press has learned.

Tuesday was a bad hair day.

The interesting question is what this does for FDR Democrats, because now they have no one left who they're willing to vote for.

I peeked in to Democratic Underground, where the nuttiest of the "nutroots" hang out. They're seething like you wouldn't believe.
