Apparently the Democrats are more worried about the continued ugliness between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton than they fear Republican attacks on Reverend Wright. According to a new article in the the endorsements are piling up. This obviously a gamble on the part of the Democrats. In my opinion, Hillary Clinton is far more likely to come out above the attacks and still collect votes against John McCain than Barack Obama muddied by Republican attacks.
”Slowly but steadily, a string of Democratic Party figures is taking Barack Obama’s side in the presidential nominating race and raising the pressure on Hillary Clinton to give up.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota is expected to endorse Sen. Obama Monday, according to a Democrat familiar with her plans. Meanwhile, North Carolina’s seven Democratic House members are poised to endorse Sen. Obama as a group — just one has so far — before that state’s May 6 primary, several Democrats say.
Helping to drive the endorsements is a fear that the Obama-Clinton contest has grown toxic and threatens the Democratic Party’s chances against Republican John McCain in the fall.”
I think the Democrats are more fearful of burning their own by skewering Barack Obama’s chance. They would rather see Barack Obama lose in the general election than alienate all the inspired voters. They see victory only by luck and the odds aren’t with Hillary. Sorry Hillary.
