To the surprise of many, the flaxen haired, poverty fighting John Edwards has bowed out of the Presidential race. Most observers picked the determined Democrat to fight on until Super Tuesday, despite running way behind Clinton and Obama in the polls. After all, Edwards had pledged to fight on until the convention. Instead, Edwards exited gracefully, saying,  "It is time for me to step aside so that history can blaze its path."

The media have immediately set about speculating over which candidate Edwards will endorse, but instead of being upstaged by a black man and a woman, this time it's Republican lisper Rudy Guiliani who's sucked the media oxygen out of golden boy's announcement by exiting stage left a few hours later.
