Kerry Endorses Obama

Here's the story.

Is anyone, anywhere surprised by this? John Kerry stayed on the sidelines just long enough to make sure that an Obama endorsement wouldn't be thrown away (i.e. that Hillary wouldn't steamroll right to the nomination).

He sure wasn't going to endorse Clinton unless he had to -- because everyone knows both Clintons were keeping their fingers crossed in 2004 that Kerry would lose. Had he won, he'd be running for re-election now, and Hillary would have been effectively sidelined.

As for Edwards, not only does Kerry know he's got no realistic shot at the nomination, but there are still some scars from the wounds that the two highly opportunistic senators inflicted on each other during the '04 campaign and in the aftermath.

Kerry Endorses Obama

Not to be out-done, Kos of DailyKos.com has endorsed Mitt Romney in Michigan.

Go Willard! Go Willard!

If I were Obama, I'd rather NOT have the endorsement of John Kerry!

How many election victories has Kos generated? One? The Democratic Primary that put Lieberman in the Independent column in the U.S. Senate.

Any more? No?

I can see why. Kos has fundamentally misunderstands the state of the Republican race. Mitt Romney is in it for the long haul no matter what the outcome in Michigan. Also, Mitt Romney is one of two Republicans who would likely defeat the Democratic nominee whomever he or she turns out to be.

I hope the Democrats do crossover and vote for Romney. He already leads in the total votes received and delegates earned. This would only help narrow the field to Mitt, Rudy, and maybe Thompson.

Great thinkin' there, Kos. You go, man.
