Kerry endorses Obama

From Fox:

Barack Obama is being endorsed by 2004 Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry, FOX News has confirmed.

Kerry, a senator from Massachusetts, plans to announce his support Thursday at a rally at the College of Charleston, said a Democrat familiar with Kerry’s decision. The rally starts at 11 a.m., and Obama’s not expected to take the stage until noon.

Kerry will argue that Obama can best unite the country as the next president, sources tell FOX News.

I can’t see this hurting Obama, but will it help ? Seems like endorsements are pretty much being ignored this election.
