Obama's Senate endorsement?

WASHINGTON (CNN) – At a DNC fundraiser in Harlem, Barack Obama all but endorsed outgoing DNC chair and former Virginia governor Tim Kaine for U.S. Senate – a decision Kaine has not yet made (or at least announced).

While many have speculated Kaine will go "plunging back into the hurly-burly of electoral politics," as Obama described it, so far the DNC chair has only coyly said he is likely to run for the seat being vacated by Sen. Jim Webb, D-Virginia.

    I really, Really, REALLY look forward to this!!! President Obama visited VA when Tim Kaine was running for governor and I met him at VCU (well was at least 3 feet away from him and WAVED but never really MET him).

    President Obama was a senator at that time but after listening to him, you just knew he was going places.... NOW – he will be BACK as the President of the United States and he will campaign for Kaine. I will be at every event – you best believe that!!

    Go Kaine – BEAT Macaca[sic]!!!!!! Yes we can!!!
