Sheldon endorses Obama; recants maverick status

This is exactly the kind of pre-Super Tuesday push Obama needs:
"I think we’ve seen four years of failed policy in Washington, D.C. The economy has tanked. Washington is in gridlock. We’re spending an incredible amount of money on the war, and we’re not receiving the respect worldwide, from other countries, that we deserve," Sheldon said, calling Obama "the only candidate who can bring Republicans, Independents and Democrats all together for a common purpose."
Sheldon, who is a Democrat as much as Kevin Federline is a model parent, then apologized for endorsing George W. Bush, saying that his 2004 decision was a "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad aberration."

"Sheldon, who is a Democrat as much as Kevin Federline is a model parent..."

I post not to detract from your characterization, but only to point out that Kevin Federline is the *sensible* parent in that coupling.

That's exactly it--Sheldon isn't an idiot or evil, just... himself.
