WASHINGTON (CNN) - Most of the seventeen Democratic senators who have remained uncommitted throughout the primaries will endorse Barack Obama for president this week, CNN has learned.
Sources familiar with discussions between Obama supporters and these senators tell CNN’s Gloria Borger that the senators will wait until after the South Dakota and Montana primaries to announce their support for Obama.
Two sources familiar with the sessions said the endorsements will come sometime later this week.
Obama supporters have been “pressing” for these superdelegates to endorse earlier in the week, but according to one source, “the senators don’t want to pound Hillary Clinton, and there is a sense she should be given a grace period.”
A series of meetings on the topic have been facilitated at different times by Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin. Durbin and Daschle are Obama supporters, while Harkin is uncommitted.
According to CNN’s Candy Crowley, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will remain uncommitted until Clinton officially drops out of the race.
Saw where Obama resigned from his church. After 20 years of hate he decided enough was enough.
NA NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA NA, HEY HEY HEY HEY GOODBYE!!!!!
Hillary Clinton will never give up because she simply doesn’t care about anything else than her place in history. Hillary Clinton will never give up because she considers herself worthy of being revered among other great leaders like Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Mother Theresa.
I will just vote macCain. Will never vote for h. obama
hey where is the paid RNC troller DEB with her Hillary or its MCSAME posts? she is late
Denial of impact: (Denial of impact involves a person avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others. By doing this, that person is able to avoid feeling a sense of guilt and it can prevent that person from developing remorse or empathy for others. Denial of impact reduces or eliminates a sense of pain or harm from poor decisions.
And, Moderate Democrats should feel fortunate that McCain is the Republican nominee! It makes the decision to vote non-Democratic much easier.
Then they should cast their vote.
this was inevitable and it would be no surprise at all when clinton supporters start to peel away from her. what's that old saying, "everyone likes a winner"? .
More losers backing losers in a loser party. Hillary should run as independent and wipe the floors with them all. THAT would be an interesting congress. We would finally get something done.
The Democrtic primary fight boils down to a clear choice.Do you want to be represented by a clueless,uninformed,Muslim-inf luenced, black/white man or a manipulative,uncaring,egotisti cal,morally bankrupt,lying woman? It's a no-brainer! Go McCain!!
Senator Clinton should honourably quit and give chance to Obama. She is just envious of Obama's chances of winning and she wants to spoil the chance. History will never judge her well if she should continue beyond June 3.
I am tired to death of her blasted "grace" period. She has been graced like crazy. She has been given more "grace" than any second fiddle I have ever seen and why is that??? Why cant we let her lose like any other candidate? What makes her so special that she has to be nursed along. Why does anyone have to walk on egg shells. She lost, she did well but she lost....quit babying her.
At this point I ask every one to please think of America and choose the best person...its not about McCain, Hillary or Obama. Its about America.
What is best for America? Do not vote Republican or Democrat. Vote American.
You are such a good sport, did you learn that from Mother CLinton????????????
This is the begining of the end for us all
This is not about Hillary Clinton, this is about the people of this country, her grace period is over. Time to unite and move forward, transcending gender and race issues, let's get to the real business.
Shes gonna fight this all the way to the convention...so it really doesnt matter. She will argue she leads in the popular vote and that Obama didnt win by pledged delegates and superdelegates can switch their votes at anytime.
Yes, Democratic Senators – let's endorse another loser! Kerry couldn't beat George W. Bush in '04, but you think Obama can beat McCain in '08. Tell me another fairy tale! The only one who can beat McCain in November is Hillary Clinton and these so-called "Super Delegates" know it – they are just chicken sh_t!
Fantastic! Now we just need the Hillary supporters to do what's best for this country and not what's best for their pride. Even Hillary will support Obama in the end. If you support McCain, you will have gone against her and what she stands for.
Voter need to take note about the super delegate who still endorsing Clinton. They are just fueling the fire and we need to make sure we take note and make them pay for their re-election bid.
may the face and wide pantsuits never grace our eyes again after June 3rd. CACKLE-TEARS-CACKLE
Denial is a mechanism of the immature mind, because it conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality.
she definitely cant say she's not getting all the deference she deserves
