Well, well, well. It turns out there was a very good reason Sen. John Kerry never mentioned his former running mate, Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, at this morning's endorsement slash pep rally for Barack Obama.
Kerry never told Edwards. He tried to "connect" with his former running mate but, well, you know how it goes, it just didn't happen.
Former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., was in Charleston, SC, this morning when an aide brought word: the Associated Press was reporting that then-VP-nominee Edwards' 2004 running mate, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., was endorsing one of Edwards' chief rivals in the presidential contest, Sen. Barack Obama.
And this was how Edwards was finding out: through the media. Not by Kerry himself.
A source close to Kerry says he had tried to reach Edwards this morning before boarding a flight from Washington, DC, to South Carolina, but "they didn't connect."
When people show you who they are, believe them.
