Edwards was incredibly gracious as he began his endorsement speech with an enthusiastic nod to Hillary Clinton. She’s earned it.

Of course, Obama’s supporters booed. Not surprising.

I’ve said it before, but political endorsements mean little. That said, this is masterful timing after Obama’s shellacing in West Virginia last night. He needed to change the subject and he did.

As an aside, it’s not a coincidence that Edwards sent out a fundraising email today. There are none in politics.

This is about Kentucky. Obama needs to win it.

Open thread.
