CNN's Candy Crowley reports that former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards met with Barack Obama today at Edwards' home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Hillary Clinton also met with Edwards at his home recently.

Both Obama and Clinton are seeking the endorsement of the former North Carolina senator.

Just over one week ago, Edwards met with several of his longtime advisers for a Saturday night session during which they discussed many issues, including which candidate he should endorse.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton confirmed the meeting with Edwards on Sunday. "Sen. 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," said Burton.

    I wish this week that CNN would focus on Obama's Senate record. The great speeches will do nothing to hide the fact that he stands for absolutely nothing! He has taken every Clinton and Edwards idea and added his own wrinkle to them, health care, education, etc.

    Would also be interested in some delving into his relationships with some of the less desirables in Chicago that he has taken campaign contributions from and less stories about Chelsea Clinton's past or future. CNN start giving us the real story or stories behind Obama's political rise.

    I will really lose respect for Edwards if he jumps on the Obama bandwagon. He was my candidate during both elections, and I think highly of him, but endorsing a hypocrite that half of America is voting for simply because everyone else is or because he is a black man and history would be made is wrong. Be the man I think you are and please stay out of it!!!
