Why would the Secretary of Education want to accept the VP spot that Dodd or Richardson will be filling?
I mean, it's like expecting US Supreme Court Justice Hillary Clinton to be Governor of NY ...
God, shut up Will. At least I'm qualified to be VP. Hillary would be a crappy justice.
What would you keep in that human-sized safe Cheney put in the VP's office, elenchos?
Then why is he holding out on his endorsement?
I'm surprised John Edwards doesn't want a second chance to carry his home state of North Carolina in a presidential election.
That's too bad; I really would've dug Obama/Edwards.
No one wants you to be V.P.
You need to be quiet now, and stay home and take care of your sick wife and run for governor or something. Continue being the fine JC Penney mannequin that you are.
Nationally, you're done.

Well of course he doesn't want to be VP. He's making gajillions of dollars as a big-time ambulance-chaser. No surprise there.
Quitter -- guess his vision and policies aren't that crucial for America, after all.
Notice how Republicans run over and over and if they lose, GOPsters respect them anyway instead of viciously attacking them? Whereas Democrats run once it seems, then quit, and we viciously attack them for losing, even if just barely as with Gore and Kerry?
Yup, no gumption, that's our problem.
A/k/a being a quitter.
@3 - so, you're 35, born in the US (or a military base overseas), and breathing?
Big whoop. After the abortion that was the Cheney vice presidency, we're going to demand that the office's power be castrated, emasculated, demeaned, and humiliated. That leaves being VP as only good for a stepping stone to the presidency, and well, Edwards has shown America that he just can't be president ever. So turning this down is no big loss for him.
If he spurns any possible appointee position, I'll take him a bit more seriously.
Too bad. I think Edwards would have been a good choice as VP for either Obama or Clinton. Since we will soon have either the first Black presidential candidate or the first Woman presidential candidate, having a typical old white guy as the VP would help shore up the nervous white guy vote. If you paired Obama/Hillary or Hillary/Obama, a lot of the nervous white guys would bail and vote for McCain.
UnPC @10, Democrats run over and over again too. Gephardt, Biden, Kusinich...
I seem to remember another democratic presidential election with a man named Kerry. In this midst of this election, Edwards anounced that he would never settle for the VP spot. Nope, he was running for the President of the United States. And what did he do when Kerry secured the nomination? Why, he accepted the VP spot!
So don't worry, he just likes to say no for the camera.
