Ward Armstrong Will Endorse Obama

Tim Craig

House Minority Leader Ward L. Armstrong (D-Henry) will announce this afternoon he is supporting Barack Obama in Virginia's Feb. 12 Democratic primary, sources said.

Armstrong had been a supporter of former North Carolina senator John Edwards, who suspendend his bid for the White House yesterday. Armstrong will appear at a 2 p.m. press conference being organized by the Obama campaign to unveil several new Virginia endorsements.

Meantime, Senate Majority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) said he has already cast his absentee ballot for U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.).

OK., so who really cares what Armstrong thinks. Actually, other than his own district, who ever heard of Armstrong.

The only reason to publish this is to further the Post's conservative bent on favoring Obama, with the goal of getting a Republican elected in the general election. Otherwise you would have led with Saslaw (who is widely known) voted for Hillary. Plus you wouldn't publish so many articles that are openly biased toward Obama. But neither of those would help the Post's objective or your own sexist position.

Tommy, you have managed to encapsulate everything that is wrong with the Clinton style of politics in one comment: 1) Arrogance ("Who cares what a senior elected official thinks?") 2) Whiny - and patently ridiculous - claims of widespread "conservative media bias, 3) Implying that Obama is conservative, which is utterly untrue and frankly, laughable, and 4) a little divisive identity politics to finish things off ("sexist?" come on!)

"Analysis?" You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
