Culver endorses Obama

Gov. Chet Culver apparently will endorse Barack Obama tonight at an Omaha rally, according to the AP and other news outlets.

It’s a nice super-delegate pickup for Obama. And Culver is the latest in a string of red/purple state politicians to gravitate to the Illinoisan, believing that local Dems are far better off this fall with Obama on the ballot than the divisive Clinton train wreck. All you have to do is look at all the independents, first-time caucus-goers and even Republicans who showed up in January to support Obama, and Culver’s call makes sense.

Culver also was probably smart to wait before jumping one someone’s bandwagon. And with the nomination race steeped in uncertainty, his endorsement still means something, even after the caucuses. Hopefully Culver won’t go around leveling personal attacks and ridiculously over-inflating Obama’s record like Tom Vilsack did to “help” Clinton to her third-place finish in Iowa.

It is a little suprising, though, cosidering how tight Culver is with Bonnie Campbell and other top Iowa Clintonites. Oh well, it will be all unity and kumbaya by November.

Update — Radio Iowa’s intrepid OK Henderson interviewed Culver about his pick.

    Mitt Romney. Presidential candidate, or time-traveling android?

    The Romneybot looks like what our future robot overlords imagine we humans want in a president after researching hours of “The West Wing.”

    Wow…not only does that have absolutely nothing to do with the thread, it’s incredibly stupid.

    There’s actually a good piece at the opinionjournal.com site about Romney and difficulty relating to ordinary people. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB120240722108951205.html?mod=Best+of+the+Web+Today.

    When a person, such as Obama, speaks Truth, the Heart hears and remembers! When a person offers hope and a better, brighter way spoken from the depths or heights of Truth,or Soul, the heart hears and Believes!
