John Edwards hasn't endorsed anyone yet in the tight Democratic race.
But one of his best-known supporters -- Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry's fame -- has opted for Barack Obama, the Illinois senator's campaign announced today.
"I support Barack Obama because he is the kind of leader America needs right now. By taking on special interests and uniting our country around a common purpose, he will change politics in Washington," Cohen said in a statement issued by the Obama camp. “When Barack Obama is President, we will finally have a government that works for all Americans.”
Edwards, the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2004, ended his second bid for president on Jan. 30. Despite entreaties from both Obama and Hillary Clinton, however, he has not thrown his support to either.
