Edwards: No, I really mean it.

For those who thought Edwards' campaign was a test drive for 2008 or 2012, think again: Edwards will not run for re-election to the Senate, and will instead focus on the presidency. Naturally, supporters of other candidates are not pleased, not because they believe Edwards has any chance at defeating their candidate, of course, despite the fact that he leads in South Carolina and remains tied for third in New Hampshire, but because he's jeopardized the party's chance to secure a Senate majority.

So pure of heart, these folks.

Update: Mark Shields predicts that John Edwards will be the Democratic nominee, or at least someone who gives his speech will be.
