Rev. Jesse Jackson endorses Senator Obama
So Rev. Jesse Jackson has endorsed Senator Obama for President. Given the close friendship between Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and the Senator along with hometown loyalty, it is smart politics for Rev. Jesse to endorse Senator Obama. It might take a bit longer for Sharpton to come around and that is fine. And while Rev. Jackson has lost some of his former luster, he is a symbol of Black American leadership and in politics, symbolism matters.
