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 am 38 years old and have never been this excited for a presidential candidate. I live in central Kentucky and can say that of those who I have spoken to and have made a decision, it's 80/20 for Obama. I have spoken to two people who are voting for McCain. At least 40, including my 64 year old white father who is voting for Obama. I don't understand all the negativity from the Hillary supporters. I like her ok, but I believe Barack has a better change of energizing the country around big changes.

    HA! Now let's watch the good governor deliver the state of Wyoming for Obama and the Dems in November. Oh wait, that's right. Most of the state's Obama has won so far are almost certain to go to the Republicans in the general.

    Now would be a good time to show some of that honesty . How about starting with telling us about what his ties are with William Ayers a man who has admitted to being involved with bombing our pentagon in the past. That aught to be a good place to start then we can move on to the rezko case and who this man really is and what obama did in return for him. All by the way lets not for get the good ole chirch and farrakan and rev wrong . Start with these for honesty.

    Obama might be a dream man for some Dems, but he is not for America in large. Wake up folks, you are are lining up behind the wrong man. It has proved how shallow it is.
