from press tv: Democrat John Edwards gives up his bid to become the next US president, after coming in third in all the nominating contests so far. Edwards is expected to make his formal announcement in New Orleans later today.
An advisor in Edwards' campaign, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the former North Carolina senator will not immediately endorse either of his rivals, Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, the Associated Press reported. Edwards waged a spirited top-tier campaign as a champion for the middle class in the Democratic nomination race, which is now a two-person competition.
