Beware the Obama Endorsement

Arlen Specter, a five-term incumbent who switched from Republican to Democrat last year in hopes of keeping his Pennsylvania seat, became the fourth Democrat in seven months to lose a high-profile race despite the president's active involvement. The Obama team can spin all it wants, but there is no denying that Barack's endorsement has been the kiss of death.

To top things off another Obama favorite Blanche Lincoln was forced into a runoff in Arkansas' Democratic senatorial primary. Add Lincoln and Specter to Jon Corzine's failed re-election bid in New Jersey, Creigh Deeds' losing run for governor in Virginia and Martha Coakley's defeat in Massachusetts and for the Democrats you have another fine mess you've gotten us into, Barack.
