Fidel Castro joins Hamas in endorsing Obama. (Hugo Chavez only said he was against McCain.)
In a presidential race in which unwanted, damaging endorsements seem far more plentiful than endorsements that actually could help, Barack Obama has had the unfortunate distinction of being a magnet for such well-wishers.
The latest unsought praise for the Democratic front-runner came from Fidel Castro, who wrote in a column for Cubaâ€™s Granma newspaper Monday that Obama is â€œthe most progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency.â€ …
In mid-April, Hamas adviser Ahmed Yousef told WorldNetDaily that â€œWe like Mr. Obama, and we hope that he will win the elections.
â€œI hope Mr. Obama and the Democrats will change the political discourse,â€ he said. â€œI do believe [Obama] is like John Kennedy, a great man with a great principle.â€
