Rep. John Lewis sorta kinda rescinded his endorsement of Sen. Hillary Clinton for president yesterday.The 11-term Atlanta congressman and hero of the Civil Rights Movement says he now plans to cast his superdelegate vote for Sen. Barack Obama at the Democratic Party Convention this summer. From the New York Times:
âIn recent days, there is a sense of movement and a sense of spirit,â said Mr. Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who endorsed Mrs. Clinton last fall. âSomething is happening in America, and people are prepared and ready to make that great leap.â
Translation: I endorsed Clinton last October because she was very popular. Now I'm voting for Obama because he's even more popular.
Clinton must be annoyed, but she doesn't have much right to complain. Lewis is just bending with the wind, which is exactly what Clinton did when she voted for the Iraq war before turning against it.
For what it's worth*, Lewis says he hasn't formally rescinded his endorsement of Clinton. He'll probably wait for Sen. Obama to come to Atlanta, camera crews in tow, to make that announcement.
I hope whoever replaces him has as good a mustache as his.
