Reich - "Obama for President"

On his own blog today
, the former Clinton Administration Secretary of Labor Robert Reich has come out today and endorsed for President ...

Barack Obama!

The formal act of endorsing a candidate is generally (and properly)limited to editorial pages and elected officials whose constituents might be influenced by their choice. The rest of us shouldn't assume anyone cares. My avoidance of offering a formal endorsement until now has also been affected by the pull of old friendships and my reluctance as a teacher and commentator to be openly partisan. But my conscience won't let me be silent any longer.

I believe that Barack Obama should be elected President of the United States.

It's a short post, but worth giving it a read-through.

And, Mr. Reich, keep your head up - James Carville will probably come gunning for you, soon

And in case you missed it ...
