Bill Clinton campaign chief backs Obama
By PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writer
34 minutes ago

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The man who served as national manager of former President Clinton's 1992 campaign plans to endorse Sen. Barack Obama, an aide to Obama said Wednesday.

Obama's campaign planned a 1 p.m. conference call Wednesday to announce the endorsement by David Wilhelm, who later became chairman of the Democratic National Committee, according to an aide who spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement would be made public later in the day.

Wilhelm planned to tell reporters that Obama can build a coalition of Democrats, independents and Republicans needed to win the general election.

Wilhelm is a superdelegate who was previously uncommitted in the race. His endorsement helps Obama in the race for delegates, in which he pulled ahead after Tuesday's sweeps of primaries in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Clinton remains considerably ahead in superdelegates, which are party officials, elected officials and others who can vote however they choose at the nominating convention.

5. O promises gaining votes
In Florence SC I was delighted to hear a long Litany of things he can do for our nation.

Great.

He read Clinton "Putting People First"
with long lists.

Difference. Clinton gave details with all the WARTS. He was factual. No Blarney.

O will have trouble doing it.

Get a D congress with overwhelming majority and yes.

Otherwise. Words of Hope.

p.s Clinton took action on 56 of his 58 promises in his book in his first two years when he had a D congress.

He had the second best record for getting Congress to pass his legislation in his first two years.LBJ first.

Newt Congress in 1995 gave him worst record.
27%.
