It doesn't have specific numbers, but it seems the ratio is even better then 29 to 4.

5. New endorsements happen each day ...
I got '29' by grabbing all the "(B)" notations from the E&P site's Obama endorsement list.

It'll be a while before they can update with precise info. It's just so neat to see the number being so high.

7. How could you possibly switch from Democrat to McCain after 8 years of Bush? What do people smoke?
