He’s for Clinton. He’s for Obama. He’s for Clinton. He’s not saying. And, wait, yup, he’s for Obama.
John Lewis FINALLY makes up his mind, telling the Atlanta Constitution Journal that neither Clinton nor Obama are returning his calls at this point.
“I did it because I felt I had to support Mrs. Clinton because of our friendship,” Lewis said. “But also I thought she was ready to lead. Lewis had placed a called to Clinton’s office Wednesday morning but hadn’t heard back from her. He also had a Please-Return-The-Call message of his own from Obama. By midday, he still hadn’t returned it.
“It’s been a long, hard and difficult struggle to come to where I am now,” Lewis said.
Congrats, Congressman Lewis, you managed to switch your endrosement in the most graceless way possible. Probably the only person you didn’t piss off in this process is John Edwards, though he might still be smarting from your Kerry endorsement in 2004.
