In case you've been wondering if John Edwards' endorsement for Barack Obama — suspiciously timed just after Hillary Clinton's ass-kicking returns in West Virginia — might have maybe been brokered in a smoke-filled back room in exchange for a possible second place on Obama's ticket…
Mr. Edwards, the one-time contender for the 2008 Democratic nomination and Senator John Kerry's running mate in 2004, responded to speculation about a potential role in an Obama administration, saying, "I have no interest in running as vice president."
Okay, fair enough. But what about a position that actually matters?
But asked about serving as attorney general, he responded: "Oh, I don't have any thoughts about any of that."
Wow! Considering the precedent set by Alberto Gonzales, it sounds like he's already perfect for the job.
