Another Dem Down..but what about Rudy?

With a stark reminder of Hurricane Katrina behind him, Senator John Edwards announced today from New Orleans that he would no longer be pursuing the Democratic nomination. After having gone 0 for 6 in the Primaries and Caucus thus far, Edwards decided “to step aside so that history can blaze its path.” Choosing not to officially endorse either Senators Clinton or Obama, many are wondering if future bumper stickers will be emblazoned with either “Clinton/Edwards 2008” or “Obama/Edwards 2008”. Only time will tell…

As the country buzzes over the Edwards announcement, there is rampant speculation that former mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, will be announcing the end to his presidential campaign as well. Also having never won a Primary or Caucus, Giuliani staked his entire campaign on Florida, a state more known for its Northeast ex-pats than its citrus fruit. Despite having spent more than 50 days campaigning, Giuliani placed a distant 3rd.

Declare Yourself is keeping its ears open and will update you when the announcement comes in – if, of course, there is one. Photo Photo
