Another One Down
BURLINGTON, Vt. - Howard Dean will end his campaign for the presidential nomination and launch a new 'campaign for change' within the Democratic Party to keep his issues alive and his supporters organized, a key campaign aide said Wednesday.

The former Vermont governor, who went winless in 17 caucuses and primaries after falling from leading contender early in the year, does not intend to endorse either John Kerry or John Edwards, the aide said on condition of anonymity. Dean has been impressed with Edwards and suggested on the campaign trail that he would make a better nominee, but Dean has decided to stay out of the Kerry-Edwards contest, the aide said.

Dean was planning to call both men before publicly announcing his withdrawal from the race.
I was rather hoping that he would endorse Edwards so we'd at least have a 'race' but I concur with suburbanguerrilla, Dean as next DNC chair would be excellent.
