A Mad Democrat Says Obama can 'Shove it'

Well, this is a switch. Democrats, such as Joe Manchin, have been running away from Obama. This candidate for governor is mad because he didn't get Obama's endorsement. Obama apparently is close to Lincoln Chafee, an independent in Rhode Island who endorsed Obama for president in 2008. Obama's headed to Rhode Island today:
“He could take his endorsement and really shove it, as far as I’m concerned,” said Frank T. Caprio, who is locked in a three-way race that includes former senator Lincoln Chafee, who is running as an independent.

Mr. Caprio has not received Mr. Obama’s endorsement in the race, and White House officials confirmed on Sunday that he would not be getting it today. Mr. Obama, a former senator, and Mr. Chafee, a moderate Republican, are close. NYT
