Darn the Luck: Edwards Doesn’t Get Castro Endorsement

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 Rodham ClintonWarren to go on attack for Clinton Lobbyists hopeful for Clinton thaw DNC event calendar MORE and Barack ObamaBarack ObamaA legacy on the line Senate should fix NATO's Montenegro problem Clinton to call on Black Lives Matter at Dem convention 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?
