HRC picks up the endorsement of The Des Moines Register. Their 2004 endorsement of John Edwards was thought to have given his campaign a substantial boost, helping to propel him from also-ran to second-place. Now they say:

Edwards was our pick for the 2004 nomination. But this is a different race, with different candidates. We too seldom saw the “positive, optimistic” campaign we found appealing in 2004. His harsh anti-corporate rhetoric would make it difficult to work with the business community to forge change.

This seems like a perfect set-up for an Edwards campaign line about how “If we don’t take the power away from these people, they’re not going to give it up.”
