Former Sen. John Edwards has ended his bid for the Democratic nomination today after failing to win a single early primary race (ABC News).
Edwards, a former trial attorney, had strong financial support among lawyers nationwide.
So DC Dicta poses this question to you: which remaining Democratic candidate do you think will become the new trial attorneys’ darling: Illinois Sen. Barack Obama or New York Sen. Hillary Clinton?
Give us your two cents in the comments section below.
Meanwhile, the WSJ’s Law Blog has been keeping track of the JDs remaining in the presidential race.
There were eight to start. But then Sens. Chris Dodd (Louisville Law) and Joe Biden (Syracuse Law) dropped out early. Then former Sen. Fred Thompson (Vanderbilt Law) threw in the towel, and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (NYU Law) and Edwards (UNC Law) will reportedly do the same today.
So now three remain: Sens. Obama (Harvard Law) and Clinton (Yale Law), and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (Harvard Law).
