The internet is alive with speculation that John Edwards will endorse Obama this afternoon (west coast time - 7 pm Eastern time.)
Edwards has been on the sidelines of this fight for a very long time, and my instinct tells me that this isn't a random event. I wonder if this is a very deliberate strategic decision to end the primary (which, for all intents and purposes, is already over) by getting the heavyweight Dems into Obama's corner.
If that's the strategy, expect an announcement within days that either Al Gore or Jimmy Carter is also endorsing Obama.
I'm totally pulling this out of my ass, so don't assume that I have any inside sources or special knowledge. I am so not that guy.
