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.

    Can anybody tell me why Obama's 10pt lead has shrunk to a 2pt lead? Also, Clinton is tied with McCain in the General Election while Obama is losing to McCain. Why will CNN not report this?

    This was done relunctantly... I saw on the MSNBC site that Obama is trying to buy Gore endorsement by hinting that he will give him a position in his cabinet.... I tell you Americans beware..... Obama's leadership if it happens will to bite us all.

    I am empathetic at this point with Hillary supporters.
    If you guys are truly democrats, and have seen enough of this war, secret back room deals, lack of transparancy, lies, with the republican party join us.
    We support Obama, the front runner representing the democratic party.
    We Welcome You.
    God bless America

    Democrats really have a pair to draw from, one a common criminal right behind her ex-President husband and another who nobody know anything about except for a well hidden agenda. One needs to go no further than Jeremiah A. Wright or wonder why Michelle's (Robinson) Obama's University of Princeton thesis, "Racial Divide" has been sealed! The campaign trail is like pitting Bonnie Parker against Thulsa Doom.

    At this point people who announce their support for Obama are just panderers to him because they know he'll get the nomination and they want as much privilege from him as possible.

    If they all truly believed in Obama, why did they not come out to support him months ago? All the obamamorons are getting excited over nothing.

  14. Why?

    What is this about honesty? Am I the ONLY person that thinks Obama has this super human ability to stretch the truth without being called a liar???? I'm just confused. I wouldn't call him honest. What angle are these super dels coming from? I don't get it?? Aren't these people supposed to know something about politics.

    Another paid politician for Obama sponsored by General Dynamics, Big Pharma that would like to remind the viewers;

    "We know your psychology and we have a puppet you can believe in."

    last night I was watching the BBC and they are hoping for OBAMA to win. They said, he is refreshing and would provide the change on how the world looks at America.

    That is, presently, it seems to be the norm and acceptable for others to hate the USA ……. but if we vote for Obama, that would change dramatically.

    This was said by the BBC!!!

    If the Clinton supporters weren’t so cocky I would almost feel sorry for them.

    Another endorsement from a Super, the gap in Pennsylvania beginning to close.....Obama wins Texas after all by 5 delagates, Obama ahead in delagate-rich North Carolina, 2 weeks away from when Hillary said those tax returns will be released and 3 more weeks for Obama to campaign across Pennsylvania. The pressure is on big time for Billary...tick...tick...tick..
    her time (and her money) are running out. Anythiong less than a 10% victory and it will be impossible to overtake Obama.

    Bring on the tax returns and the library donors, Hillary, let the voters of Pennsyvania experience transprency from you for a change.
