Barack Obama picked up another high-profile endorsement today, appearing in Ohio alongside former presidential foe Chris Dodd.
Dodd, a Democratic elder statesman with long ties to the Clinton family, also tossed a subtle warning at the former first lady to avoid splintering the party with her attacks on Obama.
"I don't want a campaign that is only divisive here, and there's a danger of it becoming that," the Associated Press quoted Dodd as saying, echoing the sentiment expressed in Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy's January endorsement of Obama.
"I'm deeply proud to be the first 2008 Democratic presidential candidate to endorse Barack Obama," Dodd wrote in an email to supporters. "He is ready to be president."
