Obama Laments N.H. Senators' War Support
RYE, N.H. -- Presidential hopeful Barack Obama opened a two-day offensive against Republican Sens. John Sununu and Judd Gregg, telling New Hampshire voters on Friday their senators should do more to end the war.

Obama, an Illinois Democrat, told a town hall audience in Rye that Sununu, Gregg and 14 other Republican senators are the main roadblocks to ending the unpopular war in Iraq. Obama backs a plan that would give the Democratic-controlled Congress more control over the war's finances and begin a troop redeployment before President Bush leaves office

3. That might be a big deal if it was ever proven that endoresements of any sort actually mattered.
