Kucinich asks supporters to back Obama

Dennis Kucinich and Wife Dennis Kucinich has asked his Iowa supporters to caucus for Obama in precincts where there aren’t enough of them for Kucinich to get delegates to the state convention. That’s a 15% threshold, and with Kucinich polling at 1%, it’s unlikely that he’ll achieve delegates anywhere.

With Kucinich polling so low, this might not be a huge deal, but it’s noteworthy that he chose Obama and not Edwards, as he did four years ago. (And whom Ralph Nader just endorsed.) Edwards’ platform is more in line with Kucinich’s this go around, but there’s been bad blood between the two throughout the campaign.
