Following are excerpts from Keith Olbermann's interview with John Edwards on “Countdown” Friday evening:

“The two change candidates won and the status quo was rejected.”

“I think they’ll see this as a change primary and they’ll have the difference between Senator Obama and myself as the two change candidates. Senator Obama – he’s a good man – but he has a more philosophical and academic approach, and I think we have a battle on our hands against these entrenched powers like the oil companies and drug companies.”

“I just told you senator Obama is a change candidate, by any measure, and so am I.”

Not a word of criticism for Obama, unless you count “he has a more philosophical and academic approach”.

Is Edwards endorsing Obama as the next best choice? Is it team Obama/Edwards from here on out? Is John Edwards now running for VP? If Edwards fails to win any of the early primaries, will he get out before Super-Tuesday and back Obama? If Obama wins the primary, is an Obama/Edwards ticket a foregone conclusion? Would Obama/Edwards be the right ticket?
