Richardson endorses Obama

This is huge!

Obama/Richardson, anyone? Yes. Most definitely.

Good news and long over due.
I'm looking for a written copy of the endorsement.

Christ how long are they going to drag this out? Somebody *cough*Hillary*cough* should step aside so they can start pounding McCain already.

People are starting to say now *finally* that Obama has won. There is no way realistically Hillary can catch him. She'd need to win 60% of the remaining contests and convince more super delegates to flock to her.

To catch up in popular vote she'd need a redo and/or counting of Michigan and Florida AND win 60% of the remaining contests.

I think Richardson's endorsement cracked the door and in the coming weeks we will see more super delegates move to Obama.

The fact that Edwards has yet to endorse a candidate I think is telling.

The Clintons thought they had locked Richardson up but he went for Obama. I think Edwards was leaning toward Hillary but maybe now he will change his mind.

Be nice to see Al Gore endorse Obama.

I agree. I think it's only a matter of time before we see more key endorsements. Gore is the biggie.

Hillary must step aside now. She simply cannot win, and the longer she stays in, the worse it is for our party.

The longer Clinton stays in the race and keeps trying to sandbag Obama, the stronger McCain gets. Clinton should know better. Every day she stays in things get worse for the Democrats.

I sure hope some more high-profile Dems will step forward to endorse Obama. Having Richardson on board is wonderful!

Yeah, where IS Gore? Here's what I think - he thinks it would be unseemly to endorse a Clinton rival, since after all, he was their veep; OTOH, he can't quite bring himself to endorse Hillary, either. So, he remains silent. If this is true, then I would say two things:

1. What a gentleman.
2. Go ahead and endorse Obama! You know you wanna! (hey, that rhymes.)
