Valentine's Day Hits The Campaign Trail

Today is Valentine's Day, and out on the campaign trail, the war of woo is being aggressively waged. This afternoon, Mitt Romney will endorse John McCain for the nomination and release his delegates from his cruel servitude. Should Romney's delegates all flock to McCain, it will bring the Arizona senator to the brink of the nomination, so Mike Huckabee better hope he finds one hell of a miracle in the Cayman Islands or else not even his kooky fair-tax "math" is going to help him.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are still courting John Edwards for his endorsement. Obama had to break his first date with Edwards, but according to ABC news, "the two talk regularly on the phone" -- no doubt long, lingering calls about hope-mongering and change-making that last well into the night. Obama has promised to meet with Edwards quite soon, and maintains that he wants Edwards "involved and partnering with me in moving this country forward."

But will Edwards end up giving his rose to Clinton? Clinton took the time out to have a sit-down with Edwards last Thursday, and made a strong impression, so much so that it was reported yesterday that he "was seriously considering supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, despite the sharp criticism he leveled at her on the campaign trail." The New York Senator has made it clear that she'd find a place for Edwards in her White House as well, saying "she would have Edwards involved in anything she does in the White House." Love is in the air!
