Boucher picks Obama

As reported here in the Kingsport paper and here in the Richmond paper elsewhere, Southwest Virginia congressman Rick Boucher has endorsed Barack Obama.

In 1998, Congressman Boucher made this statement about President Bill Clinton, which says in part: "He has diminished his personal dignity and that of the office of the presidency. He has brought the presidency into disrepute and impaired the image of the president as a role model for younger Americans.... I share the public's deep disdain for the actions of the president. And I'm truly concerned that if Congress takes no action, many troubling unanswered questions will remain with regard to the example that his conduct sets."
