Mike Moore for Obama:

Mr. Moore has decided to endorse Obama. At first I thought this wasn't going to mean very much, that most of his folk are those that probably support Obama anyway. Then I starting thinking back on the make up of those I have seen at screenings of his films. There are usually many older women in attendance, and this is, by and large, Hillary Machiavelli's crowd. I'm still not sure if this will help or hurt Obama or have no impact at all (likely?), but I do think he makes a good pitch for the junior Senator from Illinois:
Finally, I want to say a word about the basic decency I have seen in Mr. Obama. Mrs. Clinton continues to throw the Rev. Wright up in his face as part of her mission to keep stoking the fears of White America. Every time she does this I shout at the TV, "Say it, Obama! Say that when she and her husband were having marital difficulties regarding Monica Lewinsky, who did she and Bill bring to the White House for 'spiritual counseling?' THE REVEREND JEREMIAH WRIGHT!"

But no, Obama won't throw that at her. It wouldn't be right. It wouldn't be decent. She's been through enough hurt. And so he remains silent and takes the mud she throws in his face.

That's why the crowds who come to see him are so large. That's why he'll take us down a more decent path. That's why I would vote for him if Michigan were allowed to have an election.

Here is the story about Wright at the White House.

- In other news, Sen. Obama picked up another superdelegate today....

This is good to hear I think. I agree that I'm not really sure what this will do for him or whether it will harm him overall. At least MM can make up his mind unlike many remaining superdelegates.
