John Lewis to vote for Obama despite endorsing Clinton

Rep. John Lewis endorsed Clinton but as a superdelegate will vote for Obama.

I guess this is one of the cases, of which people were forewarned a couple of days ago by Brent Budowsky, where Hillary-allied superdelegates are telling her they aren’t going to stand up for her at the convention.

Is there a message between the lines of the message?

Of course it’s still very close and all this may come to nothing. (There are hints that John Edwards might endorse Hillary Clinton, but it’s conceivable that the main effect of such an endorsement would be to lower Edwards’s own reputation, through association with such an apt target of his own powerful criticisms, especially if it is in exchange for the vice presidency or a high appointment.)

Postscript: Josh Marshall calls this a turning point.
