John Edwards Hopes For A Second Look After Gaining Two Big Labor Endorsements
After Democratic candidate for president John Edwards gained two big endorsements from the United Steelworkers Union and from the United Mine Workers Union, his campaign which has been largely listing recently, is hoping for a second look by voters. Edwards is still counting on voter's concerns about Hillary Clinton's ability to win the general election as being accepted as the traditional candidate for Democrats. But so far this has not happened.
Edwards comes the closest to a traditional nominee. However his campaign has failed to really rally that many voters. But the labor backing should help somewhat, however Rep. Richard Gephardt which had strong labor backing fell far short in 2004 and quickly exited the race after a poor showing in the early primary states. Whether Edwards really gets the second look that he wants remains to be seen.
