Is Edwards inching toward an Obama endorsement?

Former presidential candidate John Edwards made his first public comments since he ended his own campaign in January at a conference call with two of Senator Barack Obama’s key endorsers.

The two groups, progressive policy advocate and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), scheduled the conference call to push for a withdrawal from Iraq to aid America’s faltering economy. While Edwards, seen above doing his best Al Gore impression, stopped short of endorsing a candidate for the Democratic nomination, supporters of the former Senator argue that his criticism of Senator Hillary Clinton’s vote to authorize force in Iraq and image as a Washington outsider make him more likely to endorse Obama, who has styled himself similarly. Instead Edwards focused his energies to attack Senator John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, declaring him “[a continuation of] the incredibly failed policies of George Bush.”

Both campaigns have vigorously courted the endorsement of Edwards, whose populist message resonates with the key demographic of blue-collar voters.
