Dodd Signs on for Obama

Chris Dodd. Remember him? After a long period of silence after dropping out of the presidential race, our state's senior U.S. Senator has now endorsed the presidential bid of Barack Obama.

What a windfall for Obama! Now the eleven people who were supporting Dodd for president finally have been released to help swell the ranks of Obamarama.

Some speculated that Dodd's presidential campaign was, in its entirety, all about getting a cabinaet post. Perhaps. If so, has Obama promised him something? It's not as though Dodd really has anything tangible to offer Obama's presidential ambitions in terms of clout, votes or influence. Perhaps he can be made Secretary of Insignificance.

And, should Obama defeat Hillary and ascend to the presidency, a Dodd vacancy certainly scares our friends on the left... in that Govenor M. Jodi Rell will be able to nominate a Republican to replace him. This is why they are working so feverishly to get a Senate Vacancy bill passed... but that's another post for another day...

If Dodd takes a cabinet post how will we know?

Seriously, could someone call his office and make them promise to call us?

Is Dodd still in office??
I thought he moved to Iowa for good. ;)

Well I hope Dodd got something for selling out his friends the Clintons for this piss-ant endorsement which isn't worth a hoot in Hell.

I would have respected Dodd a lot more if he just kept his pie hole closed for once and let the primary decide things. It would have been the classer thing to do. Now he looks like a spoil sport.

 Little wonder why it’s so hard to keep a friend when one is in politics.
