Candidate's Promise to Edwards

Former Senator John Edwards has yet to make an endorsement to either Senator Obama or Senator Clinton. Most assume his support would be with Obama considering their similarities in message and platform. Yet Senator Edwards promised his supporters that both Senator Clinton and Senator Obama have promised and assured him that they will make ending poverty a central theme to both their campaigns and Presidency. That was John and Elizabeth's passion and the very thing they ran on in their own campaign. To read the public response issued by both senator Obama and Senater Clinton click the "read more" link below. They are both very sincere and honest.

Hillary Clinton's Statement:

John Edwards ended his campaign today in the
same way he started it - by standing with the
people who are too often left behind and nearly
always left out of our national debate.

John ran with compassion and conviction and
lifted this campaign with his deep concern for
the daily lives of the American people. That is
what this election is about - it's about our
people. And John is one of the greatest champions
the American people could ask for.

I wish John and Elizabeth all the best. They have
my great personal respect and gratitude. And I
know they will continue to fight passionately for
the country and the people they love so deeply.

Barack Obama's Statement:

John Edwards has spent a lifetime fighting to give
voice to the voiceless and hope to the struggling,
even when it wasn’t popular to do or covered in the
news. At a time when our politics is too focused
on who’s up and who’s down, he made a nation focus
again on who matters – the New Orleans child without
a home, the West Virginia miner without a job, the
families who live in that other America that is not
seen or heard or talked about by our leaders in
Washington. John and Elizabeth Edwards have always
believed deeply that we can change this – that two
Americas can become one, and that our country can
rally around this common purpose. So while his
campaign may end today, the cause of their lives
endures for all of us who still believe that we can
achieve that dream of one America.
