USA Today: Obama’s Cohen endorsement “unusual step”

USA Today’s political blog calls Obama’s endorsement today of congressman Steve Cohen in the ugly primary fight against former Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton an “unusual political step” for the president.

The spin from Herenton’s camp is to go right up to the line of calling the endorsement the proverbial political ‘kiss of death.’

This AP story says Herenton, the underdog in the Cohen-Herenton race, is credited with “improving Memphis’ economy and its schools.”
