If he does, surely that's going to be big news - a real coup for Obama, and a nail in the Republican coffin...
Frankly, I find the fact that he's taken until 19 days before the election to endorse is a bit weak, Republican or not.
If this were a tighter race I think he would have kept to his earlier line of not endorsing a candidate. But he can see which way the wind is blowing, so it doesn't really carry any consequences for him anymore...
and he's more trusted by independents than, um, lots of other guys. I read it in some article earlier. Still, he did that bullshit presentation to the UN in 2003, so he gets no props from me.
and doesn't hold any current office
...which is why his late, late, late endorsement isn't all that brave.
