LOCAL DEMS PASS ON PREZ PICK

No endorsement from Greene County Democrats before Missouri's February primary. But Barack Obama's backers are carving out space next week at local Dem HQ in hopes of picking up new support.

The e-mail blurb from local Democrats comes with a strong front-end caveat:
The Greene County Democratic Party is not endorsing any candidate for President. However, we do encourage people becoming involved in Democratic politics and will forward information involving local Democratic Presidential events.

Colin Milligan, Field Organizer for Missouri's 7th Congressional District, will be working out of the Greene County Democrats Central Committee Headquarters this Monday and Tuesday from 9:30 am till 5 pm. He will be happy to meet with anyone who wishes to talk about the Obama campaign and ways to get involved. Just stop on by and say hello.
One local elected Dem put it this way: "Hillary has my head, but Obama has my heart." Milligan's in Springfield to pull on those heartstrings.

Does it really make a difference which one they select??
Based upon their voting records the status quo of larger government, more government entitlements, restrictions on freedoms and liberties, and the continuation of the Iraq war will result no matter which elephant or ass gets elected.

While the Greene County Dems aren't endorsing anyone, it sounds as if Claire McCaskill will be endorsing Obama.

In my lifetime I don't ever remember a local political party endorsing a candidate for President. Why is this news?
