Klobuchar Backs Barack Obama

Democratic Senator from Minnesota, Amy Klobuchar has formally endorsed Barack Obama as the nominee for President.

This is yet another in a long line of significant endorsements for Obama. It is the second femalee US Senator to endorse him, after Sen. Clare McCaskill of Missouri came out early for Obama and was instrumental in helping him win that state's primary.

"Between Barack and a hard place, I chose Barack," Klobuchar said.

"He's able to dissolve the hard cynical edge that has dominated our politics under the Bush administration."

Obama still continues to trail Clinton amongst women - this endorsement should go a good way to helping to appeal to that important demographic.
