Edwards Hints At Obama Vote

John Edwards Admits He Voted For 'Him' On MSNBC:

Former Senator John Edwards, appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, may have steadfastly refused to name which Democrat he voted for in the North Carolina presidential primary on Tuesday, but the Internet is abuzz with evidence of a slip-up on his part.

Scrutinizing the tape more closely, one exchange between Mr. Edwards and Mika Brzezinski, the co-host of “Morning Joe,” suggests that Mr. Edwards refers to the person he voted for as “him.”

Several minutes into the interview, Ms. Brzezinski was pressing Mr. Edwards on his potential endorsement.

“You’re saying that this candidate you voted for will be the candidate that you potentially endorse, that it looks highly likely, if I can use your words?” she said.

“I’d say that’s very likely,” Mr. Edwards said.

“Okay, well, I’m close, I just need to find out who Elizabeth voted for,” Ms. Brzezinski said, referring to Mrs. Edwards.

“I just voted – I just voted for him on Tuesday, so–,” Mr. Edwards said.

Immediately afterward, Edwards attempted to backtrack but I think it's clear what happened here. He slipped up, and admitted supporting Obama. Then again, he's a bit late to the party...
