Murray, Cantwell switch to Obama

As expected, Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, two superdelegates who were among Hillary Clinton's earliest supporters, announced today they are switching to Barack Obama.

In press releases shortly after Clinton suspended her campaign and endorsed Obama, the two Washington state senators praised Clinton for running a "ground-breaking" campaign and said they looked forward to working with Obama in the coming campaign.

Thoughts on how that or anything else around Clinton's action today? It's the topic of discussion here.
