John Kerry To Endorse Obama For President

From Boston Globe:

Kerry to endorse Obama

January 10, 2008

By Susan Milligan, Globe Staff

John F. Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, will endorse Barack Obama in this year’s race, a source close to the Massachusetts senator said.

Kerry, who announced last year he would not again seek his party’s nomination for president, believes his Illinois colleague “has the best potential to bring about transformational change,” said the official, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak about the endorsement before Kerry makes it official in Charleston today.

Kerry is the latest prominent Massachusetts Democrat to join Obama’s team, following Governor Deval Patrick and Representative William Delahunt, among others.

Hillary Clinton, Obama’s main rival for the Democratic nomination, has Representatives Barney Frank, Stephen Lynch, James McGovern, and Richard Neal in her corner.

Senator Edward M. Kennedy has not yet made his pick…

Oh, my.

Well, Obama’s a shoo-in for sure now.
