(CNN) - Oregon Rep. David Wu said Thursday he will cast his superdelegate vote for Barack Obama.
"I think we are blessed to have two strong candidates for president," Wu said in a statement released by Obama's campaign. "I am endorsing Barack Obama for president today because I believe that he is best suited to turn the page on this sorry episode in American history. He and I both had the judgment to oppose the Iraq War from the very beginning.
Wu, a five term congressman, is one of the party's nearly 800 superdelegates who will ultimately decide who gets the Democratic presidential nomination. He is the second Oregon superdelegate to endorse Obama ahead of the state's May 20 primary - Rep. Earl Blumenauer endorsed the Illinois senator earlier in the year.
Clinton also has two Oregon superdelegates in her camp - Gov. Ted Kulongoski and Rep. Darlene Hooley.
Woo-hoo! Or should I say Wu-hoo!
Welcome to the team.
Welcome aboard Rep. Wu!
Obama has now picked up more superdelegates since Hillary's "big win" in PA.... what does that tell you about what party leaders are thinking?
And yet another Super for Obama. Lets keep them coming because it is time to end this race and send the Clintons packing.
Excellent, thank you Rep. Wu!
Watch the Hillary supporters show up and be like "THIS IS NEWS??" CNN is so biased!! they only cover Obama and not Clinton.
I think Obama was right when he said people were bitter. He was probably referring to Clinton supporters who are bitter because their candidate is losing.
I guess "folks" in small towns and states are "smarter and more educated" than folks in the BIG states!! Hillary is from NY–
NY, PA, FL, CA etc. (except TX), continue to amaze us! Just look at the "wisdom" of the smaller states– Indianna, NC, Iowa etc.– . Left to them, this madness would have been over with before now!!
Thank you Rep. Wu, You are a very smart man
I hope a sense of urgency about the future of the Democratic party propels more supers do to the same very quickly.
WELCOME TO THE WINNING SIDE SIR!!!!
PS: I wish people will sto saying Obama should have put this away!!
HE DID WHEN HE WON 11 STRAIGHT CONTESTS!! AND PICKED UP SO MUCH DELEGATES THAT IT IS MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR HER TO WIN (imagine if the roles were swtiched, there will be LOTS of pressure for Obama to drop out)
Does he think Obama will outsource more to China?
Representative Wu, if you have notice in the past none of the endorsement matters!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations Senator Obama. Thanks to Rep. Wu for the endorsement from all the people who believe in Senator Obama.
Thank You David Wu, you are a very wise and informed man! It looks like the superdelegates are starting to see through all of the lies and back the best candidate. Keep up the good work Barack.
Does he think Obama will outsourse more to China?
Jee wiz, they just keep coming over to the Obama camp. Isn't this like his tenth this week alone. Wonder why??????????
THATS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT SUPER DELEGATES ARE TAKING NOTICE OF THE KITCHEN SINK TACTICS.
N-NO BUSH POLITICS
"UNITED WE STAND, OBAMA IN COMMAND"
"CHOO CHOO" ALL ABOARD
Welcome aboard and thanks for the support at least one super a day that all we need by the time the last primary is held Sen Clinton will be in bankruptcy court and we will turn and focus on Mc Cain and I really doubt it will be that hard!

How strange these people going for Obama the day after he loses another big key state that will determine the election outcome in November.
Is Obama buying these people?
What does the United States call other countries who change their rules in the middle of an election to favor a particular canidate. Corrupt. That is exactly what Hillary Clinton and her team want to do. Change the rules in the middle of an election. According to the official rules this election is finished and Obama is the winner. Therefore, no more need for another debate so they can team up on Obama 3 to 1 again.
I know Hillary won't quit until she is knocked out all the way, so Obama please knock her out. Give her a good solid knock out punch that lands her sprawling on the ground. Then give her a couple of good kicks to make sure she doesn't get back up. We're getting sick of her and her buddies nasty mouths.
