NY Times:

Senator John Kerry embraced the presidential candidacy of Senator Barack Obama here on Thursday, saying Mr. Obama "had the greatest potential to lead a transformation, not just a transition."

"Who better than Barack Obama to bring new credibility to America's role in the world and help restore our moral authority?" Mr. Kerry said, speaking at a rally at the College of Charleston. "Who better than Barack Obama to turn a new page in American politics, so that Democrats, independents and Republicans alike can look to the leadership that unites to find common ground."

While it remains to be seen how much impact this will have in South Carolina--a state that John Edwards won in 2004--it does tend to confirm the whisperings about the fallout between Edwards and Kerry after the 2004 election that Kerry did not contest, despite Edwards' desire to. What IS invaluable to Obama is the access to Kerry's mailing lists for outreach and fundraising.
