The Kind of Endorsement You Don't Want

Posted by Teresa at 3:36 PM
Today Sen. Barack Obama picked up the endorsement of MoveOn.org.
Notice how the AP article doesn't mentions Moveon.org until the third
paragraph. Also, it leaves out the controversy over the General Petraeus
ad. Here's a snippet of the news article:
Barack Obama picked up the endorsement of a leading anti-war
group Friday and said Democratic presidential rival Hillary Rodham
Clinton still has not adequately explained her vote to go into Iraq.

Obama told reporters in a news conference that, even though
Clinton explains how she would like to end the war, her explanation
for her vote leading into the war is disingenuous. He said his
opposition against the war from the start will make him the
stronger rival to Republican front-runner and war backer John
McCain in the general election.

Obama's long-standing opposition to the war helped him pick up
the backing of MoveOn.org, a liberal network which counts 3.2
million members and decided to support him by a vote of 70 percent
to 30 percent for Clinton. The group said Friday that it has 1.7 million
members in the 22 states scheduled to vote in the race Tuesday, and
it would immediately begin a campaign to get them behind Obama.
It will be interesting to see if he would acknowledge the endorsement.
