Obama's Brilliant Timing?

Was it just a coincidence, or an example of brilliant timing, that the Obama campaign staged the endorsement of John Edwards at a massive rally just a day after the Illinois Senator's West Virginia debacle?

We opt for the brilliant timing theorem. Surely, the Obama campaign was aware of Edwards' decision at least a few days before they held a big rally to announce it. Since the Obamans knew they were going to get creamed in West Virginia, their strategic decision on when to drop the Edwards bomb--which more than made up for the delegates lost on Tuesday--was quite clever.
