Did you hear that noise? That was MoveOn.org backing Obama

This could be - and I emphasize could be - huge: The MoveOn.org membership has voted to back Obama as the Democratic nominee:

Obama's long-standing opposition to the war helped him pick up the backing of MoveOn.org, a liberal network which counts 3.2 million members and decided to back him by a vote of 70 percent to 30 percent for Clinton. The group said Friday that it has 1.7 million members in the 22 states scheduled to vote in the race Tuesday, and it would immediately begin a campaign to get them behind Obama.

7 out of 10 backing Obama, with 1.7 million members in Super Tuesday states. That is, well, just super! If the membership really gets behind Obama, campaigns for him, and gets out there and votes on Tuesday, this could be the tipping point in California and elsewhere for Obama. Or maybe not. Who the hell knows? A man can hope, can't he?

The article also notes that the SEIU in California has also moved their endorsement from Edwards to Obama. Let the sun shine. Let the sun shine.
