64. I actually doubt it because it would make him look insincere
He attacked HRC ferociously. He said she had no conscience and was corrupt. Though he attacked Obama as well, it was not as virulently. I suspect he will simply wait to endorse the nominee.

He has made it clear that he wants to continue as an advocate for his issues. He has more leverage before he endorses than afterwards. He also will anger some people who love him when he does - either way. (Look at the response to Kerry, Kennedy, Clark etc) If he had a clear cut reason that one was clearly better than the other, he likely would already have made that recommendation.
