Edwards and Giuliani drop out of White House race

After their disappointing results in the presidential caucuses and primaries so far, both John Edwards and Rudy Giuliani decided to drop out of the White House race after the Florida primary, but before the probably crucial Super Tuesday on February 5.

Rudy Giuliani immediately endorsed John McCain as the Republican candidate for president. This endorsement could give additional momentum to the Republican frontrunner to force a decision on Super Tuesday. Mitt Romney is not beaten yet and has enough campaign money and personal wealth to continue the race all the way to the Republican presidential convention.

The left-wing populist John Edwards has dropped out of the presidential race without endorsing another Democratic candidate yet. Anything but an endorsement of Barack Obama would not make sense after his repeated attacks on Hillary Clinton as the candidate of the Washington establishment.

John Edwards called Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.
“They have both pledged to me - and more importantly through me to America - that they will make ending poverty to their campaign for the presidency”, Edwards said.

Voter turnout in South Carolina was almost twice the previous record for a Democratic primary, and this in a traditionally Republican stronghold. Currently, the Democratic party and its candidates are able to mobilize their voters stronger than the Republican side, which is a warning sign for Republicans.

If John McCain will face Barack Obama, the disenchantment of the Christian right with the Republican candidate could seal the deal for Obama. If Hillary Clinton should run against John McCain, the anti-Hillary sentiments could mobilize Republicans and create enough disenchantment on the left for another Republican president to be elected.

The field is narrowing, but nothing is decided yet.
