Sweet: Obama picks up superdelegate Sen. Amy Klobuchar

| 5 Comments

WASHINGTON--Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) snagged the backing of superdelegate Sen. Amy Klobucher (D-Mn.) who did not endorse at the time of the Minnesota vote--which Obama won--but is coming through for him now. Obama, I hear, has more superD's in the pipeline.

After a weekend without conference calls from the presidential campaigns, the Obama team kicks off the week with a phoner on Monday morning featuring freshman Klobuchar and Campaign Manager David Plouffe .

LIKE MY FATHER ALWAYS SAID "THE CREAM ALWAYS COMES TO THE TOP."

"The cream always comes to the top". The cream is so bad for you! Guess that what you meant!

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEANT, AND MORE SUPER-DELEGATES WILL START TO TELL
YOU WHAT THEY MEAN AS WELL. TELL YOUR MAMA TO VOTE FOR OBAMA!

Phil, my mother died three years ago and my son is close to forty. I've been around long enough to sense when something 'smells off', and I've had that sense about Obama from the first time I heard about him. My intuition. Go figure.

MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY ABOUT YOUR MOTHER,BUT YOUR INTUITION IS WAY
OFF, THIS MAN IS PACKING ARENAS WITH 22,000 PEOPLE WHO ARE
LOOKING FOR A CHANGE AND A JOB, AND A PENSION, HE IS THE LIGHT
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, GIVE THE MAN A CHANCE TO SHOW YOU AND
THE REST OF THE WORLD WHAT TRUE LEADERSHIP IS ALL ABOUT!
A WISE MAN ONCE SAID IT BEST- ARE WE TO BE AMERICANS ONLY WHEN
THE MOOD FITS YOU, DEEP DOWN INSIDE I THOUGHT AMERICANS WERE
HONEST PEOPLE, BUT YOU GIVE US A POKER HAND WITH A FIXED DECK
AND CALL THIS A FAIR GAME!
TO SUM IT ALL UP- THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR BUT FEAR ITSELF!
THE MEDIA NEEDS TO STOP, ESPECIALLY FOX NEWS TRYING TO SCARE
PEOPLE ABOUT THE CANDIDACY OF BARACK OBAMA, HE IS ORGANIZED,
HE KNOWS HOW TO RAISE MONEY AND HE HAS A PLAN AND HE WILL BE THE
FUTURE LEADER OF OUR NATION!
