Just a quick little post on Jim Clyburn

Jim Clyburn (House Dem Whip) on April 25th:

On Clinton supporters, "But they're hell-bound to make it impossible for Obama to win."

Today, he endorsed Obama.

Was it ever really in doubt?

Personally, I think the Congressman is a genius. He held out appearing to be not picking sides.... allowing himself to be seen as neutral... when in fact it was known probably back as far as the SC contest 5 months ago that he would be endorsing Obama.

From January 11, 2008:

"ASHINGTON — Representative James E. Clyburn of South Carolina, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, said he was rethinking his neutral stance in his state’s presidential primary out of disappointment at comments by Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton that he saw as diminishing the historic role of civil rights activists."

Yea, true neutral.

My problem with Fox News has always been not so much that its conservative as much as they try to appear as being neutral. If I see an apple, I'll call it an apple. Clyburn was always for Obama and to say otherwise was/is a joke. Why didn't he just endorse earlier? I guess he wanted to make sure all the voters were heard. But does the Congressman honestly believe that voters aren't smart enough to realize what is going on?
