Obama Receives Endorsement of Flag Officers from Army, Navy and Air Force:(March 12)

Citing his judgment and ability to lead, admirals and generals from the United States Army, Navy and Air Force that together have served under the last nine Commanders-in-Chief announced their endorsement of Senator Barack Obama for president.

In offering their endorsement, the generals and admirals recognized Obama’s judgment to oppose the war in Iraq before it began, his respect for the Constitution and rule of law, his leadership on behalf of America’s servicemen and women and his ability to conduct the diplomacy necessary to restore America’s standing in the world.

BTW, Obama won Texas, 99-94, check it out on and don't forget to post the news on your blog--you wouldn't want to misinform your readers.
