John Edwards Puts Himself Back in the Frame

Interesting to note that John Edwards appears to be changing his tune regarding the Vice Presidential spot somewhat.

After his unambiguous assertion that he would not serve as Vice President he John Edwards has now said that he would "seriously consider" a VP offer.

From CNN:

"My answer to that is, I've run for vice president, I've run for president twice. I would do anything that I felt I could do to serve this country but I think it's a huge presumption for me or anybody else to suggest what Senator Obama may decide," he said.

"To answer your question directly: I don't expect to be asked, have no expectation about it at all, I will - anything that Senator Obama asks me to do, including this, including campaigning for him, I intend to do, because what I'm going to do, I intend to take seriously," he added. "What I intend to do is everything in my power, use everything in my power to make sure that he's the next president."


Pressed on whether that meant he might join the ticket if asked, Edwards would not rule it out. "I am prepared to seriously consider anything, anything he asks me to do for our country," he told NPR.
