Jimmy Carter addressed several friends and a guy who was looking for nails at a local Home Depot today and made it official: he will endorse Barack Obama for president.
While enjoying some Entenmann's cake samples at the local Depot, served in celebration of a local "do it yourself" weekend in his hometown, Carter made an impromptu speech to some friends who came along with him to help him carry some hand tools and lumber home.
The former president made it clear that he thought that Barack Obama was the best choice for president, and planned on voting for him in the general election in November, though added that "he might need a ride that day."
The former president Carter added that he had just returned from an all important "fact finding tour" in the electrical department, learning much about the "relationship between copper wire and electricity, which he planned to share with important world leaders" after he stopped at the "Gas and Run" for an ice cream sandwich.
He also said he helped mediate a dispute between Ronald, the hardware supervisor and Mike who works at the saw table.
More importantly, the former president is a superdelegate, an honor made clear by his "Kiss me I'm a Superdelegate" tee shirt. Carter stated that much of his family supports Barack Obama, a fact he verified while they all attended a local "Potato Days" festival a few weeks ago.
