Two unsurprises

As I had expected, Giuliani is leaving the race. Only slightly less expected, he's endorsing McCain. As far as I can tell, pretty much all the other candidates hate Romney -- indicating that they at least understand *some* things correctly.

Also unsurprising, Edwards is also dropping out, although he isn't endorsing anybody yet. Given that neither Clinton nor Obama are exactly political soulmates of his, that's kind of to be expected, although it still won't astonish me if he winds up as Obama's running mate.

Super Tuesday is time for out of the frying pan and into the fire. Neither Giuliani nor Edwards stood much chance of being more than a spoiler at this point, so it's sensible for them to go, rather than wasting money and confusing the race further. So it'll be interesting to see how things rebalance...
