I posted last week about the possibility of candidates teaming up to beat Clinton in Iowa.
So this statement by Edwards (now a few weeks old) caught my eye today:
“The differences between Sen. Clinton (D-N.Y.) and myself are much more dramatic than the differences between Sen. Obama and myself,” Edwards told reporters after receiving the endorsement of the progressive group Caucus for Priorities, which seeks a reallocation of defense dollars into social programs.
“Down the line,” Edwards said, on issues such as “What we would do in Iraq? What we should be doing about Iran. What we should be doing about corrupting influences in Washington and a broken system, (there are) really big differences between Sen. Clinton and myself.”
I don’t read too much into it — Perhaps the statement was just a condition of the endorsement, or maybe Edwards is trying to steal some of Obama’s thunder. But it gives me hope that they’re trying to figure out some way to work together.
