Another disagreement between John McCain and Mitt Romney: John Edwards. While they both agree that Edwards is finished, Romney seems happy about it and McCain wishes he'd stick around.

Romney, speaking this morning, ripped Edwards - "who I don't think we'll have to listen to too much longer" - for his "Two Americas" rhetoric.

McCain, on his bus this weekend, said he was confident that he could beat Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Then he caught himself. "Senator Edwards would be offended if I didn't mention his name. I feel confident against him, too," he said, laughing.

"I'm going to miss Senator Edwards because I always get to mention that he called it 'The McCain Surge.'" McCain waved his arms toward himself as if to beckon Edwards back. "Stay in, John!"
