Thanks! Did you hear about Maryland party chair Michael Cryor and his deputy Lauren Glover who endorsed Obama on Monday? Both are super delegates.

The Baltimore Sun has a video of the announcement.

We added them to the superdelegate endorsement list earlier this week.

DCW admins,

I think we should start the "healing process".

I realize that this site has been extremely neutral on the Democrats' primaries. But I am assuming that you are fellow Democrats, not Republicans.

So, how about dedicating an effort to win over HRC supporters to Obama, so that they won't even think of voting for McCain this November?

We can start with policy contrast between HRC vs Obama, and HRC vs McCain...

We are all hard-core Democrats. Do you think a Republican would start a blog dedicated entirely to the 2008 Democratic Convention 3 years before it happens?

I can assure you that the minute a nominee is named we will do everything we can to show John McCain for what he really is. We will also do everything we can to show why our nominee should be the next president.

Until that time we will continue to remain neutral. It's worked for us so far.
