Gossipy, Rumory, but Clinton fans buck up
There're some "people close" to Edwards saying he might sit it out, and others saying "he is eager to play a major role in the race."
I don't think it really affects the delegate count (they're under no obligation,) but it could be something of a momentum changer and that's what Clinton sorely needs right now.
Treat this as rumory at this point, but something to watch.
Later: What I would call feeding the speculation.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton trashed an array of corporate interests in an economic speech in Ohio Thursday, vowing that as president she would go after oil, credit-card, insurance, pharmaceutical, investment, and loan firms.
I think it's in her campaign's interest to feed this Edwards rumor. It's probably a good avenue into the Ohio/Wisconsin labor vote.
