Barack Obama receives more endorsements

Add the Kennedy Clan to the list of those endorsing Barack Obama—and not Hillary Clinton—in the race for Democratic nomination for president.

Matt Drudge posted a link to an article earlier today that reported former president Bill Clinton’s unsuccessful attempts to get the Kennedys to back his wife. A New York Times article stated that JFK’s daughter, Caroline Kennedy, said that Obama reminded her the most of her father.

Also endorsing Obama is—interestingly enough—African-American author Toni Morrison. The same Morrison who famously described Bill Clinton as the “first black president.”

My question: If Hillary ultimately gets the nomination, will all these people still end up endorsing her? Or is the love affair between the Democratic Party and the Clinton’s starting to sour?
