Obama Endorsements

Yesterday I read someone saying "McCain has been lying about Hamas endorsing Obama."

You guys should know better. McCain has a rep for saying what he believes, even if it's unpleasant to hear, or if he doesn't have the policy support he thinks he does. This, however, was a fact. Here's the interview. Listen for yourself.

Hamas actually DID endorse Obama. This is not to say that Obama solicited the endorsement, which afaik he did not and would have been utterly mad to do.

I agree. I don't think he solicited it. He did portray himself as someone they would do better having than McCain, and they reacted accordingly, and our followup question should be: what, in his portrayal of himself, gave that impression?
