Big Boost for Obama

SEIU endorses Obama.

This is a very big deal. Last year, much to the disappointment of Edwards supporters like me, SEIU, chose to endorse no candidate-and they could have continued to play it safe. Seems to me, Obama has convinced them that he will be the nominee. The support of SEIU national will not only allow members in the upcoming states to provide "boots on the ground" for Obama, but it will also allow members from around the country to travel to other states to provide important support. Plus, this endorsement seems to undercut the idea that Clinton is the favorite of the working class. Both in terms of real support and perception, this endorsement is a big boost for Sen. Obama.
