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.

    Nice. This makes a lot of sense. I'd like to see the endorsements keep trickling in so we can get down business with the general election.

    I have been following American politics for many years ;this young man -Barack Obama is way up there among the very best in America's political history.Hilary Clinton is a good politician but lacking that presidential aura that embodies Barack Obama.

    welcome aboard! about time some of these people started standing up and realizing that this country has got to come together for the sake of us all. America has been divided since the first Clinton term and will only be further divided by a second Clinton in office. However you better watch out the Clinton supporters will now tear you up saying you are being fooled or some how tricked it is amazing to me that the most brainwashed people in this country the Clinton followers i call them that because it almost seems like a cult at this point. will take shot at some of the most experienced and well educated people in the country because they believe the lies of two snakes in our midst.

    Go Obama 08

    Isn't he a Superdelegate. Why isn't this a bigger news topic or is it because Wyoming is a "little" state?

    Hey CNN, would it be possible to bury this endorsement any further down in the political ticker? Maybe you should file it under yesterday's news so no one will know!

    Ah, who wouldn`t wanno join the winning train. Good thing Hillary ain`t quiting. She need a serious beating still and like Sonny Liston, her mamma didn`t raise no fool, she`ll end up sitting in the stol. This is reality, not Rocky.

  20. Business as usual...

    CNN where is the announcement of Clintons endorsements??? What like she has none??? Inform the people equally – and actually, I think she has more endorsements than Obama – would that surprise anyone?

    This is another so-what!

    I think it's great that prominent endorsers are coming out of the woodwork. Unfortunately, the candidates have to rely on the "bigwigs," but at least after all of the endorsing, the voters can see where their choice stands, and who's going to navigate this country back to good standing in the world, and also fix some of the domestic damage left behind. I, personally, need just a pinch of civility in my politics right now. I guess that means that I'm bucking some of my former idol's ( Bill Clinton) suggestions of taking off the gloves. I hope that the primaries to come, continue having record turnout. It was a beautiful sight to see the energy that was created by the candidates. Remember those good old days?

    Who cares, Wyoming? Give me a break. Democrats do not win that state in the general election. Again I ask, who cares? Solutions over stolen speeches and nutty preachers.

    Hillary/McCain '08'

    Another one for Obama. In the upcoming weeks superdelegates are going to start coming out for Obama like roaches in the kitchen when the lights are off. I guess Rocky will have to wait until the sequel in 2016 for a chance to win!
