At 1 p.m. (EST) today in New Orleans former North Carolina senator and Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards with his wife and three children by his side will make the announcement that he is quitting. He will be giving a speech on poverty and share his plan to work with Habitat for Humanity at the volunteer-fueled rebuilding project Musicians' Village. Mr. Edwards is still very passionate about restoring the hearts, minds and homes of every Hurricane Katrina victim in the BIG EASY. John Edwards never won any State while on the campaign trail. After South Carolina it clearly became a two-person race for the Democratic nomination.
John Edwards and his family are in need of our prayers because his wife is still fighting cancer. Thank you Mr. Edwards for being a fine Southern gentleman and a true friend to those suffering from poverty in America. I know you would make an awesome Attorney General in the Obama cabinet.
