Well, well, well what do we have here. Looks like our man Rep. Lewis is a little conflicted about hedging his bet with the Clinton machine. I'm not sure exactly what is causing Rep. Lewis to be so torn. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that his constituency went for Obama 3 to 1. Well, whatever it is, it is causing the man some inner turmoil. Rep. David Scott (Ga) got out of his endorsement of Clinton while the getting was good so we will see what Rep. Lewis does. Is he going to keep his word to Sen. Clinton or is he going to represent his "employers" properly and reflect what they voiced when they went out to the polls and voted for Obama?

This is what Rep. David Scott had to say about switching his endorsement over to Obama:

"You've got to represent the wishes of your constituency," Scott said in an interview Wednesday in the Capitol. "My proper position would be to vote the wishes of my constituents." The third-term lawmaker represents a district that gave more than 80 percent of its vote to Obama in the Feb. 5 Georgia primary.(Source)


Rep. Lewis on the possibility of him endorsing Obama:

In an interview, Lewis likened Obama to Robert F. Kennedy in his ability to generate campaign excitement, and left open the possibility he might swing behind the Illinois senator. "It could (happen). There's no question about it. It could happen with a lot of people … we can count and we see the clock," he said. (Source)

  1. Mr. Lewis is probably feeling a lot of pressured heat from his constituents, I being one of them.

    I have sent him a letter expressing my concern over the fact that Georgia's popular vote overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama in the recent primary election and that is who he should endorse.

    The people spoke loud and clear and this time we make a demand to be listened to and supported. After all the job of the congress and other politicians is to "SERVE" the interest of the people, not the interest of "SELF."

    We the people have a voice! There is much power in the “PEN.” Write the super delegates today and make a demand on them. It is in their best interest to do so if they expect the public to continue to support them with the almighty VOTE.

    My prediction is that he has no choice but to do the right, just, fair and honorable thing.

  2. I knew the law of self-preservation would take over these politicians eventually. They will do anything to cover their own behinds.
