SPECULATION SWIRLS . . .
WILL MCCASKILL ENDORSE OBAMA?
Buried in a New York Times story is a nugget that seems to say Sen. Claire McCaskill will soon endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president.
"The mayor of Atlanta, Shirley Franklin, announced her endorsement of Mr. Obama on Wednesday and the campaign is wooing Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who aides say expects to announce her support soon," reports the NYT.
Also, from the Washington Post: "The campaign also is targeting three prominent female politicians, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sibelius and Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri. All three represent states that will vote on Feb. 5, and all three are being heavily courted by both Clinton and Obama."
