    •  Strange, I read it (0+ / 0-)

      before I posted.  You know what's west of the Hudson, don't you?  An endorsement opportunity that wouldn't be safely superfluous.

        •  Obama hasn't endorsed Buono against Christie (0+ / 0-)

          Is the complaint I think

          •  Ah, ok. That's legit. I wonder if Obama's (0+ / 0-)

            endorsement of Buono will help at all.  I'm sure it'll sway some voters but not sure if they'll get over the whole "Christie was a hero during Hurricane Sandy" mentality.

            •  He may give Christie a pass (0+ / 0-)

              Christie has huge lead; so Obama couldn't do much.

              And Obama may feel personal debt to Christie for not being a d#%k when Obama visited Shore right after Sandy and right before the 2012 election.

              Remember Obama didn't do anything for Thompson in 2009.  Back then Obama was such a hit he could've put Thompson over the top.  But nobody (except Thompson's internals) had him within 10%, and  Bloomberg was hinting at Independent pres run.

      •  I think the endorsement was more personal then (0+ / 0-)

        Political...

        DiBlasio married a black woman and they have a lovely son who kind of looks like Obama did when he was that age...and a lovely daughter too

        And this is a genuine progressive candidate with a better then even chance of winning

        And who knows,  Dante may grow up to be another American  bi racial president ...

        Definitely a personal endorsement imho
