Sen. John Kerry endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for president at a South Carolina rally today.
That will carry some weight with Democratic voters â€” Kerry was, after all, their 2004 presidential nominee and narrowly lost to President Bush.
But others wonder whether Obama really gains anything by associating himself with Kerryâ€™s losing reputation.
I think it canâ€™t hurt Obama, who needs some support from party leaders at this stage to counter Clinton campaign charges that his candidacy is a â€œfairy tale.â€
What do you think?
