that he didn't want to interfere in the primary elections. I love Joe -- who doesn't? -- but President Obama did not want to be an undue influence on the primary process. Obama has always stressed that the American people are the locus of decision and change. President Obama does not want to endorse ANYONE until the Nominee has been determined -- all wishful thinking and fantasizing to the contrary. Once that Nominee has been chosen by the PEOPLE, Obama will undoubtedly endorse and strongly support him or her. But Joe Biden is fudging it if he implies that President Obama secretly supports him, but just doesn't want to be public about it. Obama's statement in March that he would not be endorsing any Democratic candidate in the primary should be taken at face value.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Pete Buttigieg
