Wyoming governor endorses Obama

(CNN) – Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal is backing Barack Obama's White House bid, the Illinois senator's campaign said Wednesday.

"Senator Obama is the Democratic candidate with the openness, honesty and skill to end this vicious cycle of business as usual," Freudenthal said in a statement released by the campaign.

Obama won the Wyoming Democratic caucus on March 8 with 61 percent of the vote.

    I guess the gov really isn't as concerned about the 2nd Amendment as he has earlier said. Obama would try to ban guns for personal protection.

    Senator Obama is the Democratic candidate with the openness, honesty and skill to end this vicious cycle of business as usual? Openness to the anti-america people, honesty saying no even the fact is yes he was standby the anti-america pastor. Come people, do you have sense right and wrong? Do you really think push him to the national election will not shame the party in total?

    When Hillary Clinton told Senator Feingold that "he was living in a dream-land," as Senators Feingold and McCain tried to push campaign finance reform, that, in my view, epitomized Hillary's ugly personality.

    Oh, sniper fire in Bosnia? Come on America, the Senator from New York is a joke!!!! As she does so well among people without college education, maybe she'll cut education spending as her first act as president.

    My "hats off" to the governor of Wyoming (another ex-Clinton official) – yeah!!!

    The momentum is clearly with Barack. If he manages to close the gap in PA by single digits, that will be a victory for him and more superdelegates will eventually support him.

    What some people fail to realize is how Obama is inspiring a whole new generation of registered voters. This has the GOP shaking in their boots since McCain is dipping into the same old base. Barack Obama will be our next President and lead America to a better future.

    So Hillary, does this caucus result or endorsement matter? Probably not since it didn't favor you, your Highness.
