Sometimes the timing of these announcement makes a lot of sense- like when
Gore Edwards** endorsed the day after Hillary won in West Virginia.
But I have no clue why Robert Byrd – Senator from WV – waited until a week after their primary to endorse Obama.
For whatever reason, he did.
And I agree with the Hill’s take on it:
Byrd’s endorsement is yet another sign that the long nomination battle between Clinton and Obama is nearing an end.
