24 Hour Dorman: Profiles in Harkin

Excerpted from this post at 24 Hour Dorman

One day after the race for the Democratic presidential nomination
effectively ended, U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa threw his long-awaited
endorsement to the winner, Barack Obama. Harkin told reporters,
according to several news accounts, that his sensitivity to the
passion displayed by backers of Hillary Clinton, including his wife
Ruth Harkin, prompted him to withhold judgment until judgment was
dressed in its jammies and in bed. Other analysts, a.k.a. me, say
Harkin actually supported Clinton all along but was too afraid to say
so after Obama won a historic caucus victory. What would the fired up
kids say if Tommy H joined that square Tommy V on the magic bus back
to the 90s?
