Poor John Edwards can’t catch a break in his bid for the Democratic Party nomination. The only way he’s able to raise money is by riding Ann Coulter’s coattails, he’s had to give up the $400 haircuts (and it shows), and now it’s being reported that Fidel Castro has written an essay saying Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonChris Murphy’s profile rises with gun tragedies DNC, RNC step up cyber protections Gun proposal picks up GOP support MORE and Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaAll five living former presidents to attend hurricane relief concert Overnight Health Care: Schumer calls for tying ObamaCare fix to children's health insurance | Puerto Rico's water woes worsen | Dems plead for nursing home residents' right to sue Interior moves to delay Obama’s methane leak rule MORE would “make a winning combination.”

Just how far left does poor old John have to go to get the Communist leader’s attention?

Here’s the lede from Reuters: “Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro is tipping Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to team up and win the U.S. presidential election.

“Clinton leads Obama in the race to be the Democratic nominee for the November 2008 election, and Castro said they would make a winning combination.”

Keep hope alive, John Edwards. There’s still a chance Hugo Chavez could throw you his support. Maybe if you announced Sean Penn as your running mate?
