Re: “Obama Endorses Cohen's Reelection Bid

Shane - I know a number of middle-of-the-road voters who were planning on voting for Cohen simply because they couldn't stomach the idea of Herenton representing them in Congress.

Now that Cohen has tied himself to Obama, however, there is no way these voters are going to support Cohen.

Will these disenfranchised independents now vote for Willie? Not likely.

But the Obama endorsement kills a key voting block for Cohen -- independents.

And what does the Obama endorsement give Cohen? Nothing.

Re: “Obama Endorses Cohen's Reelection Bid

What's the benefit of this endorsement to Cohen? All Obama's support will do is turn off the independent voters who were going to vote for Cohen simply because they are sick of Herenton.

It's not as if Obama's endorsement is going to sway African American voters to side with Cohen. History shows that African Americans will typically side with the African American candidate when given the choice between a black and white candidates.
