John Edwards may be softening his position on being Barack Obama's running mate.

The former North Carolina senator says if he were asked to accept the vice presidential slot of a cabinet position, he would seriously consider the offer.

Edwards has been reported to be on Obama's short list or potential choices. He says he plans to do everything in his power to make Obama the next president to the United States.
