(CNN) – An expected meeting between Barack Obama and John Edwards Monday has been rescheduled due to scheduling conflicts, the Obama campaign confirms.

The two men were to discuss John Edwards' likely upcoming endorsement of either Obama or Hillary Clinton.

Clinton met with the former presidential candidate last Thursday. On Saturday night Edwards huddled with several longtime advisers to discuss many issues, including which candidate he should endorse.

The Obama campaign did not give any sense of when the meeting may now take place.

    if John Edwards is smart he will ask Obama to consider him for a post if he endorses his campagne because Edwards always said Hillary couldn't go against corporations because she is sponsored by them and she represents the old statusquo, so we will see what his mindset is like!

    Edwards is handling this like a huckster – offering his endorsement to the highest bidder. Regardless of who he endorses at this point – he comes off looking tainted.

    Sounds to me like the two parties would just rather meet without all the media frenzy.

    He called both candidates to tell them he was dropping out of the race, and he'll speak to both candidates before making an endorsement, if he does at all.
