Bakersfield, CA: Goodbye Edwards, Hello....

I was driving from LAX to Bakersfield early this morning when I heard NPR confirm that John Edwards is dropping out of the race. I was really sad to hear that he wouldn't be sticking it out for Super Tuesday next week. I had really been looking forward to casting my first California for him.

Now that Edwards is out - and Kucinich dropped out this week too - I am not sure who I will vote for (what?? no more white guys??). I would have liked to vote for Cynthia McKinney but I realized that since moving west I registered as a Democrat for the first time. My vote will likely go to Obama, though he doesn't have the anti-poverty message that sold me on Edwards.
