The next Leader of the Free World (?!?)

There are rumours going round that John Edwards is going to pull out of the presidency campaign, possibly due to his wife's ill-health (she was very ill a few years ago but was thought to have recovered fully).

If so, who will that benefit? I reckon Barak Obama - Edwards' support would have been amongst those who were worried that an Ivy League North East female would fail to win support across the whole country. Also, as the front-runner Hilary would have benefited from a divided opposition - the more support coalesces around Obama the less impressive her lead begins to look. Even if Edwards supports Clinton (we'll see) I reckon it isn't particularly good news for her.
