Did Speaker Pelosi Just Endorse Obama?

There have been rumors on which way her support was leaning in the last month or two, but yesterday's statement about an Obama-Clinton (or vice versa) from the Speaker gave further confirmation that she is a fan of Barack Obama and who knows, possibly giving an endorsement of the Senator from Illinois in due time.

From Boston TV:

(NECN) - Thinking a Clinton-Obama or Obama-Clinton ticket sounds too good to be true for Democrats? The Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California says you're right.

"I think that ticket either way is impossible," Pelosi told NECN's Alison King shortly after an environmental event in Waltham, Massachusetts today.

Pelosi cited comments made by Clinton officials that John McCain would be a better commander-in-chief as an example of why the 'dream ticket' wouldn't become a reality.

As for who she favors at this point, Pelosi, who will chair the Democratic National Convention in Denver, isn't tipping her hand.

"I'm uncommitted," she reiterated to Alison King.

But for hopes of a Clinton-Obama dream team, there's no subtlety.

"I wanted to be sure I didn't leave any ambiguity," she said.

Ambiguity eh? Interesting word choice Madam Speaker. Shutting down Hillary Clinton's statements about Obama as VP due to Clinton's praises of John McCain tell us more than we need to know Congresswoman.

Thank you!
