      John Edwards says would not accept VP nomination

      By Sinead Carew Thu Apr 3, 2:41 PM ET

      LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Former Democratic presidential
      candidate John Edwards said on Thursday he would not
      accept the nomination for U.S. vice president as he
      did four years ago.

      Edwards, a former senator from North Carolina, dropped
      out of the 2008 race that is still being contested by
      the two remaining Democrats, Barack Obama and Hillary
      Clinton, to see who represents the party in the
      November 4 general election.

      Edwards was picked as running mate with Democratic
      presidential nominee John Kerry in 2004 but the two
      were defeated when President George W. Bush and Vice
      President Dick Cheney were re-elected.

      After his keynote speech at CTIA, the annual U.S.
      wireless industry showcase, Edwards was asked in a
      question-and-answer session if he would accept the
      nomination for vice president.

      "No," said Edwards, who also declined to say whether
      he would endorse Clinton or Obama.

      Edwards dropped out of the presidential race after
      finishing third behind Obama and Clinton in key early
      nominating states.
