Edwards Is Dropping Out - The Caucus - Politics - New York Times BlogEdwards Is Dropping OutWe were wishing for Rudy to exit. But, John Edwards beat him to the punch.
Rudy G, the ex-gov of NYC, the guy who speaks with a subject, verb and 9-11, spent from $35 Million to $50-Million and got ONE delegate (from Nevada). That's some expensive delegate.
I'd say Rudy has 1,000 times the press coverage of Ron Paul in this campaign. He was the front runner for months. He was getting great press when he was getting last.
If Rudy had gone full-speed in the earliest states, he would have been bonked out by now. He put all the eggs in the Florida basket if you don't count the other ones he already cooked elsewhere -- hence that $50-m price tag.
