    It’s what happens when you get a high profile endorsement. You tout it. You let people know that this person likes you and not your opponent.

    So when Colin Powell announced his support for Barack Obama, the Obama campaign touted it.

    Likewise, when Dick Cheney announced his support for John McCain, the Obama campaign touted it.

    Bipartisan Obama

    What, is the Democratic nominee so incredibly bipartisan that he’ll put out a press release for both his endorsements and McCain’s?

    Apparently so. Talk about unselfish.


    Obama congratulates McCain

    Vice President Cheney was in Laramie, Wyoming over the weekend (where his approval rating is still above freezing) stumping for Republican candidates when he announced his support for McCain.

    The ever-alert Obama campaign took those remarks and pieced together a brand new commercial this morning.

    “Wanted to make sure you caught our delightful new ad starring the vice president,” emailed Obama spokesman Bill Burton.
