Nice to see Joe Andrew step up:

WASHINGTON – A leader of the Democratic Party under Bill Clinton has switched his allegiance to Barack Obama and is encouraging fellow Democrats to “heal the rift in our party” and unite behind the Illinois senator.

Joe Andrew, who was Democratic National Committee chairman from 1999-2001, planned a news conference Thursday in his hometown of Indianapolis to urge other Hoosiers to support Obama in Tuesday’s primary, perhaps the most important contest left in the White House race. He also has written a lengthy letter explaining his decision that he plans to send to other superdelegates.

“I am convinced that the primary process has devolved to the point that it’s now bad for the Democratic Party,” Andrew said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

Joe says what I’ve been saying for a while (despite the arguments of the Clintonites):

“a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to continue this process, and a vote to continue this process is a vote that assists (Republican) John McCain.”

Good on ya Joe! Now, calling all non-cowardly super-delegates! We’re beyond toughening up our candidates. We’re into shoot self in foot mode. Joe knows this. Andrews specifically cites Obama’s principled stand to oppose the silly gas tax holiday and his handling of the Jeremiah Wright guilt by association clap trap.

  • PS – The super-delegate gap is down to 19. This thing is so over the fat lady has already left the building.

    D I S E N G E N U O U S N E S S …

    Everyone knows that Obama disrespected Bill Clinton …
    playing the race card on him, and trying to tarnish his
    record during the primaries … but, because of the
    disingenuous DNC, and Obama, and their putting party
    above country, and blackmailing the Clintons into
    supporting Obama … using their debt and Hillary’s
    future in politics as their leverage, the Clintons have
    been strong armed into supporting Obama. Why should a
    successful and respected two term President like
    Bill Clinton have to stoop to the ambitions of the far
    left DNC, and their upstart, empty suit candidate …
    while Obama and the DNC disingenuously pretend that everybody has
    kissed and made up??? Also, the PUMAS and other
    Hillary supporters have had to endure the same
    condescending disrespect from them as well. I say
    the DNC and Obama made their bed, so let them lie
    in it … they deserve nothing more.
