Weirdly absent from the Democratic convention was any well known Democrat who knew Obama and his life saying, "I know Barack Obama. I endorse Barack Obama. We've worked together creating legislation." Ideally Joe Biden would have said this.

But she said Nothing Like It. She endorsed him as the party nominee, naturally. They are all Democrats, But that endorsement showed as much enthusiasm as a kiss through a screen door.
Barack Obama, fill in the blank
