McDermott endorses Obama

U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott endorsed Barack Obama today, giving the Illinois senator 290.5 superdelegates.

As is usual, each said something nice about the other. McDermott said he believes Obama will bring the country together and move it forward. Obama noted McDermott’s support of universal health care and that he was right in his opposition to the war in Iraq.

The endorsement means the clock is now ticking until the state or national Republican Party headquarters issues a statement that this just shows how liberal Obama is, with one of the most liberal members of Congress in his camp.
