Kerry Backs Obama

John Kerry, endorsed Barack Obama over his 2004 running mate, John Edwards.

The Associated Press calls Kerry's endorsement of Obama a "slap" at John Edwards and pay back to Hillary for chiding him in 2006 for his infamous botched joke, which insulted U.S. troops and revived memories of Kerry's innumerable flip flops and equivocations, like his "I have been consistent all along."

Obama's loss to Hillary in New Hampshire doesn't seem to have hurt campaign. In addition to the Kerry endorsement, Obama was endorsed by two key unions in Nevada - the Culinary Workers Union, and the Service Employees International Union.
