Dan Boren(D-OK): “I’ll Vote for Obama, But I Won’t Endorse Him.”

I see See-Dubya [1] is watching the endorsement list. Maybe I ought to as well, if they’re mostly as amusing as this:

Dan Boren from Oklahoma’s second district-“Little Dixie”-seems more than a bit agnostic about the Obamessiah, whom he dubs the “most liberal Senator [2]“.

Get that?  Most liberal.  More liberal than John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, or Barbara Boxer.  The. Most. Liberal.

I don’t really get the “too liberal to endorse, but not too liberal to vote for” distinction, but there you go. He’s a superdelegate, so he’ll vote for Obama at the convention, too.

Why wouldn’t he endorse Obama?  Probably because he’s running for re-election in gun-totin’ Reagan Democrat central.  He’s also been to Iraq [3] since Obama has.

Heheh. Ain’t it real…

Update: (Bit)

Now we see Ohio Gov Ted Strickland joining the ranks of the firmly non-committal… Says ABC’s Political Radar: [4]

ABC News’ Teddy Davis and John Santucci Report: Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) was Shermanesque on Tuesday in saying that he would “absolutely not” be Sen. Barack Obama’s, D-Ill., running mate even if asked to join the Democratic ticket.

Asked on NPR’s “All Things Considered” if he is auditioning to be Obama’s running mate, Strickland said, “Absolutely not. If drafted I will not run, nominated I will not accept and if elected I will not serve.

So, I don’t know how more crystal clear I can be.”

I suspect that there’s a lot more in the way of elected officials who are more than a little bit edgy on Obama. Of course there’s the issue of how many Democrat VOTERS will be equally if not more edgy about him. I suspect it’s far more than we know.
