He exulted in being the “minority white man” in the Democrat presidential race, but the jig is up and the gig is over. John Edwards is dropping out.

He won’t be missed. Not the cloying, braying sanctimony. Not the hypocritical Fox-bashing. Not the oleaginous class warfare. Not the odious politicization of Memorial Day.

And not the hair.

All together now: DLTDHYOTWO.

So long, Silky:

Democrat John Edwards is exiting the presidential race Wednesday, ending a scrappy underdog bid in which he steered his rivals toward progressive ideals while grappling with family hardship that roused voters’ sympathies but never diverted his campaign, The Associated Press has learned.

The two-time White House candidate notified a close circle of senior advisers that he planned to make the announcement at a 1 p.m. EST event in New Orleans that had been billed as a speech on poverty, according to two of his advisers. The decision came after Edwards lost the four states to hold nominating contests so far to rivals who stole the spotlight from the beginning — Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.

The former North Carolina senator will not immediately endorse either candidate in what is now a two-person race for the Democratic nomination, said one adviser, who spoke on a condition of anonymity in advance of the announcement.

Allah wonders: Deal with Obama?

Look back at these South Carolina primary exit poll results.

Will more of those votes go to Hillary or Obama? “Where do male white Democrat voters go?”

One analyst is telling Fox that they’ll go to Hillary. I say Obama.

We’ll see.
