WASHINGTON–The secret did not keep for long, but secret it was–Barack Obama flew to Chapel Hill, N.C. on Sunday to meet with John and Elizabeth Edwards about an endorsement. WTVD in Raleigh-Durham has a picture of Obama and Edward embracing, taken from their chopper and a tick-tock on when Obama landed Sunday. LINK
Hillary Rodham Clinton had her own secret meeting with the Edwards earlier at their home more than a week ago. I’m told by an Edwards source that Elizabeth warmed up to Clinton when they got together.
“Senator Obama visited this morning with John and Elizabeth Edwards at their home in Chapel Hill to discuss the state of the campaign and the pressing issues facing American families,” Obama spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement.
