Edwards: Extracting a Price?

John Edwards is out.

It would seem that his voters would have already made up their minds to reject Clinton, and so this development would help Obama. Then again, Edwards' "beer drinking" constituency is closer demographically to Clinton supporters than to the "wine drinkers" who support Obama.

Having beat the drums for "change" and focused most of his fire on Hillary, the Clinton people have to be terrified that Edwards will endorse Obama. And it's interesting that Edwards has been cagy about whom he will endorse.

How much would you bet that the Clinton camp has already initiated overtures? What do you think Edwards wants? Attorney General (shudder)?
