Former GA Senator Sam Nunn endorses Obama
I hate to get political or partisan, but given the current state of the Democratic contest for their party’s nomination, I figured this was apropos.
Now, to hear the commenters “discuss” things over at AJC.com, this is either the magic bullet that saves Obama or the silver bullet that kills him.
I realize we’re not very political here (well, I’ve already endorsed Obama personally on my blog and james has endorsed McCain here & on his personal blog) but I’m curious what Atlantans think of this move.
Does it matter for Georgia?
Does it matter for Pennsylvania?
Does it matter for the Democratic race?
Nunn had previously toyed with the idea of his own Presidential run, do you think he’s lobbying here to be Obama’s running mate? (I do, but I think Bill Richardson is a likely choice).
Anyhow, I’m no political blogger, but I think this is a big deal. Nunn was always well-liked in the state and had that magical “bi-partisan” quality that pundits and voters talk about but can’t quite define. The “I’ll know it when I see it” variety.
Feel free to throw in your two cents on this issue.
