Obama Not Visiting Edwards In NC After All

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama will not be coming to North Carolina after all.

It had been announced that the Democratic presidential contender would visit the state to talk to former rival John Edwards about getting his endorsement.

New York Senator Hillary Clinton quietly visited Edwards last Thursday in North Carolina, but Obama has decided today not to do the same.

The Illinois senator held two large rallies in Maryland, which holds its Democratic primary on Tuesday along with Virginia and the District of Columbia. Obama hopes to build on the momentum gained over the weekend, when he swept four contests from Clinton.

It was a good weekend for Obama. As Clinton was changing campaign managers on Sunday, Obama easily won the Maine caucus and even scored a Grammy award, beating former President Clinton and others for "best spoken word album," for the audio version of his book, "The Audacity of Hope."
