Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago endorses Obama

As reported Here, a New York Times article that details Obama's rise from South Side liberal-yuppie darling to watered down more mainstream politician.

Good to know that he represents a different kind of politics.

"Early last year, Mr. Obama endorsed Mr. Daley in his re-election bid, asserting that Chicago had blossomed during his tenure.

****

Just before Mr. Obama complimented Mr. Daley, the mayor did something unusual, as well. He broke with his tradition of remaining neutral in Democratic primaries and threw his support behind Mr. Obama’s presidential bid."

I mean, what Progressive wouldn't like to be associated with the most notorious political machine in the United States? A vote from Daley is good enough for two votes from me. On the same day.
