Edwards Mum On Presidential Pick As NC Primary Nears

John Edwards has all but disappeared in the four months since he dropped out of contention for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Edwards stayed in the spotlight in the four years after his first bid for the White House.

Now, some supporters and friends say they'd like to hear a signal from Edwards.

Consultant Gary Pearce advised Edwards when he ran for Senate in 1998. Pearce says Edwards got to know candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and could share his understanding of them.

Edwards' recent stretch of privacy comes after years of near constant scrutiny. Edwards launched his first presidential campaign in September 2003, and really never stopped campaigning for the White House until dropping out of this year's race.

    Mike is right he hopes to get the VP.The only difference between Obama and Edwards is one is white and one is Black.They both came in about the same time and either one of them has done nothing but try to be the next president.

    I think Edwards as the V.P candidate would be great.

    Edwards will not tip his hand. He has hopes for the number 2 spot on the ticket and doesn't want to alienate either candidate. The problem is that with Edwards as the V.P candidate there would be 2 Liberals on the ticket. Lord, help us!
