WASHINGTON (CNN) - Several sources tell CNN that House Majority Whip and superdelegate James Clyburn of South Carolina will endorse Senator Barack Obama Tuesday.
Clyburn, whose congressional district went overwhelmingly for Obama in the state's January primary, had said that he would wait to weigh in on the presidential race until the last nominating contest had been held. Earlier this spring, he had made remarks critical of Bill Clinton, calling his conduct on the trail "bizarre," and telling interviewers that some of the former president's actions had deeply upset African-Americans.
"There are African-Americans who have reached the decision that the Clintons know that [Hillary Clinton] can’t win this," he told Reuters. "But they’re hell-bound to make it impossible for Obama to win.”
I agree with Lori in CA. McCain might just lose his temper on stage and blow up.
Yeah, the "conspiracy" to give the nomination to the candidate with the most delegates. How nefarious is that!
Isn't it a self-fulfilling prophecy to have half the party go vote for McCain "because Obama isn't electable"?
McCain would certainly lose if he lost half the Republican party to our side.
GREAT NEWS, but isn't Clyburn House Majority Whip?
For those who won't vote for Obama...Suffer
Nobody, that makes two of us! LOL.
No Problem Hillary haters! You, Obama, and the so-called superdelegates will pay dearly in November for disrespecting and pushing Senator Clinton aside.
The superdelegates "wonder boy Obama" will not win in November.
Hillary supporters vote McCain.
Go Obama – paraphrasing earlier post:
"The Phantom of Opra"
Why doesn't this surprise me.
A bunch of gutless sheep that would rather have an unqualified man than a qualified woman.
All these so called super delegates are toast after this election.
They won't have a prayers chance in hell when the women in this country unite and give em the boot!
2 LATEST POLLS: ARG- CLINTON LEADS OBAMA BY 26% IN South Dakota. OKIL Clinton leads obama by 16% in Montana.
This is not really news, but it's good to know nonetheless.
Hillary Clinton SAYS she's staying in this race because of the voters and because she wants to improve the lives of middle and lower income Americans. However, her actions are purely contradictory.
There are many women who wanted to vote for a woman for president in their lifetime......but Senator Clinton is NOT that woman, much as she thinks she is or deserves to be. To vote for a female candidate solely because of gender is not a good enough reason.
Sorry, Hillary - if you intend to make another run, you would be wise to think hard about the reasons you have lost this time around.
To all the women threatening to vote for John McCain, I hope you can sleep at night when thousands more of the men and women that serve our country in Iraq and other parts of the Middle East are killed in war that was a mistake to begin with and has been for the most part handled badly.
To all the women threatening to vote for John McCain, I hope you enjoy putting yourselves and seniors through more economic strain with social security becoming privatized under him. Not to mention tax breaks will continue to go to the wealthy and those of us in the middle and lower end will continue to struggle when more jobs go overseas and oil companies make billions while we pay $6 a gallon for gas.
To all the women threatening to vote for John McCain, just remember that the children of this nation will be impacted by your choice. McCain may very well continue the failed policy of 'All Those Kids That Can't Compete' on the world stage.
It is my hope that this hatred will be extinguished when the reality of this nation’s future is put ahead of personal feelings and agendas. Our nation can not take four more years of failed Bush policies. We must come together for the greater good of the country and support the Democratic Nominee; Barack Obama.
It's time to wrap it up and nothing about it is unfair to Senator Clinton. The complaints of unfairness make her appear to be weak and her supporters should think about that.
Wow if you want to know how Hillary is thinking just read these pitiful posts by her supporters. If my 8 year old whined like that it would be TIME OUT!!
Seriously you people REALLY do sound like that. Really!
The flood gates are about to open and drown out the Clinton campaign once and for all. Thank goodness!
Thanks Cyburn for having our back with Obama in the front.
Nice to know that Hillary gave something back to her supporters: Hate, intolerance and righteous indignation. Now, when will all the Slick Willy finger-pointing start?
To Lori Give me a break. He would not debate Hillary because he could not compete with her and now you are talking about Obama and McCain. Hillary walked all over him. Thats more than funny.
Clinton's snatch has finally run dry of excuses. I mean her mouth, of course.
Black people have hijack the Democratic party. As a white person I naturally belong to the GOP.
I understand your frustration that your candidate did NOT win... but let's be logical here. It is absurd to say that you would rather vote for McCain over Obama. McCain stands for everything we HATE as a democrat. This election is BIGGER than us, Hillary or Obama. It is about finally doing the right thing– putting a democrat back in the White House. So we have to stick together......
Women voting with their emotions and not their brains are setting the "movement" back hundreds of years.
If a woman never becomes president, you'll be the reason...misogynists are pointing at you "Hillary or McCain!" types and laughing right now...saying "I told you so!"
Act like you have some sense.
