Rep. Maxine Waters Switches From Clinton to Obama

A press release from the Obama campaign announces he is 12 delegates away from clinching the Democratic nomination. The superdelegate that put him there is a dramatic reversal:
Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) endorsed Barack Obama for President. Waters switched her endorsement from Clinton to Obama citing his ability to unite the country and leadership on issues such as the housing crisis and war in Iraq.
Waters gave Clinton some serious anti-war cred in California and delivered one of my favorite talking points from a surrogate this year: "The people I represent have plenty of hope, they don't need more hope, they need help." I suspect Waters may be the latest in what may become a stream of superdelegate switches.
