you go, girls

Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey Jr. has attributed part of his recent endorsement of Obama for the Democratic Party nomination to his four daughters, who have apparently taken their earlier campaign message on behalf of their dad to heart:
From the Associated Press on March 28, 2008:
“I really believe that in a time of danger around the world and in division here at home, Barack Obama can lead us, he can heal us, he can help rebuild America,” Casey told the crowd in Pittsburgh.
Wait, you mean Hillary Clinton might be an ineffective leader for this country?
When asked if the three presidential candidates could be successful in uniting the country if they were elected president, 60 percent of all voters believed Obama could be successful at doing this, 58 percent of all voters said McCain could unite the country while only 46 percent of voters said the same about Clinton.
A little more from the Associated Press:
Casey said enthusiasm for Obama by family members – including his four daughters – was part of his reason for endorsing now. He said he did a lot of thinking over the Easter holiday.
“When people you love and people you respect in your family or community are not just supportive of him, but incredibly enthusiastic about his candidacy, that has had an impact on my thinking and the way I approach this,” he said. “I didn’t think that at this point in our history with the stakes so high that I could stay on the sidelines once I had made a decision about who, the person I’d vote for.”
