Waxman and Berman Back Obama
Two prominent House Democrats announced their support of Obama today: foreign affairs committee chair Howard Berman (D-Calif.) and oversight committee chair Henry Waxman (D-Calif.). Waxman stressed Obama’s "experience, judgment, integrity and toughness" in his statement, while Berman said Obama has "laid out a foreign policy vision driven by principle and conviction." Here is Waxman’s release.
I was just going through the list of unpledged superdelegates, picking out which are the big names left. Besides the obvious choices (Pelosi, Carter, Gore), Waxman and Berman were near the top of the list. I’m expecting Obama to continue rolling out supers, but saving a few for after Kentucky next week, where Clinton will likely win big again.
