20. It would depend on what the trade is
It certainly not the same deal as with Edwards. This is more of a single state endorsement than a horse trade to get delegates as it was with Edwards.

Perhaps Obama will endorse Kucinich in his House run? I don't know, but that might be a reasonable guess. Obama is backing Dennis's right to attend the New Hampshire debate, so that could be it. Obama might be more open to Dennis's health care plan than we know (I can dream).

That's how I see possible benefit to Dennis.

But.

I disagree with all of this crap about how Edwards is so God awful progressive and how could Dennis possibly betray his principles by giving support to Obama. It may be that Dennis actually believes Obama over Edwards. It may be that Dennis's experience in Congress has been more agreeable or productive than his experience in Congress was with Edwards. He may have trusted the centrist Edwards as at least sincere and disbelieves the "progressive" Edwards. It could be something that simple.
