Two Former DNC Chairs Endorse Obama Now!

In addition to Joe Andrew, former DNC chair under Bill Clinton, Barack Obama has picked up super delegate Paul Kirk, the former DNC chair from 1985-89. Andrew’s endorsement was perhaps a bigger surprise since he had first come out in favor of Hillary Clinton, but has now changed his mind.

Why did Andrew change? Perhaps his quote from a Huffington Post editorial tells it all.

Innuendo is easy. The truth is hard.

Sound bites are easy. Solutions are hard.

Spin is simple and easy. Struggling with facts is complicated and hard.

I have learned the hard way that you can love the candidate and hate the campaign. My stomach churns when I think how my old friends in the Clinton campaign will just pick up the old silly Republican play book and call in the same old artificial attacks and bombardments we have all heard before.

That is a poignant message!
