Obama receives the endorsement of Dennis Kucinich

Sort of:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa – Representative Dennis Kucinich urged his Iowa followers today to select Senator Barack Obama as their second choice at the caucuses on Thursday if his support is not strong enough to be viable in the 1,781 precincts across the state.

“Senator Obama and I have one thing in common: Change” Mr. Kucinich said in a statement today.
The two spoke briefly by telephone before Mr. Obama flew here for an afternoon rally. In a statement, Mr. Obama took advantage of the opportunity to point out that he, along with Mr. Kucinich, opposed the war in Iraq. “He and I have been fighting for a number of the same priorities” Mr. Obama said.

Four years ago, during his first presidential bid, Mr. Kucinich announced a similar second-choice partnership with John Edwards. At the time, aides to Mr. Edwards said it helped contribute to his second-place finish in the caucuses.

Yeah. I’m sure all 13 of Dennis Kucinich’s supporters in Iowa are going to make a big difference for Obama going into tomorrow’s caucuses ;)

Speaking of Iowa, a new Des Moines Register poll shows Obama ahead of Clinton 32% to 28%, with John Edwards coming in at 24%. How significant is this? Well, last year going into the polls (according to a pollster I heard on the radio this morning), John Kerry was polling in the top spot over John Edwards, who was followed by Howard Dean, and that was the result of the Iowa caucuses as well.

And beyond Iowa, the MSM are feverishly reporting that it’s “neck in neck” in New Hampshire for both parties with just six days to go til the NH primary.

Stay tuned …
