An interesting endorsement for Obama today. Pelosi’s BFF George Miller, a fellow Californian who chairs the House Education and Labor Committee, announced today he’s endorsing Obama .

Pelosi has so far stayed out of the race. But when her top advisor who also happens to be a famous champion of women politicians endorses Obama, does it send the signal: is there room in Washington for both a Speaker Pelosi and a President Hillary?

Speaker Pelosi’s office wanted Swampland readers to know:

“Speaker Pelosi is chair of the Democratic Convention and has decided not to endorse any of the candidates. She is thrilled with the enthusiastic Democratic turnout in Iowa and New Hampshire and expects it to build in upcoming primaries. The country is clearly ready for a New Direction, and the Speaker looks forward to working with a Democrat in the White House and having a bigger Democratic majority in Congress next year.” — Brendan Daly, a Pelosi spokesman
