Hooray! Even though the writing was on the wall, former "frontrunner" Rudy Giuliani has now exited the race! At least we can take comfort that possibly the most vile candidate in presidential history is gone (although Huckabee, Romney, and McCain are all close behind for that title). And maybe Ron Paul will get more time to speak in tonight's debate!
In another related unsurprising move, John Edwards did the same. It's interesting that even though Clinton is still considered the favorite, party bigwigs are throwing their weight behind Obama. Neither party's nomination is close to being settled now, nor are they likely to be settled on Feb 5.
