Update 12:28pm Eastern: The rally has begun. John Kerry’s endorsement recycles his “healing” rhetoric. Silky reacts.

Update: Ha.

I’m not sure why it warrants a Drudge siren, but the Associated Press is reporting that John Kerry will endorse Barack Obama: “Kerry, a senator from Massachusetts, plans to announce his support Thursday at a rally at the College of Charleston, said a Democrat familiar with Kerry’s decision. The 2004 nominee will argue that Obama can best unite the country and has the potential to create transformational change, the person said.”

Will he be for Obama before he’s against him? Because, you know, he’s kind of famous for that…

Ed Morrissey diagnoses typical Kerryism:

Kerry seems a much better fit for the Clinton team. They’re both Establishment, and both equally accomplished in Congress. He’s somewhat more liberal than Hillary, but his platform on the Iraq war in 2004 comes closer to her position than Obama’s. Hillary campaigned for him in 2004 with much more effect than Obama did, even if she didn’t seem terribly enthusiastic about it at the time.

And why announce this in South Carolina, of all places? Wouldn’t this have helped more three days ago in Manchester, New Hampshire? If Kerry had done it there and then, it would have had much more influence on his neighboring state than a Yankee coming to Charleston. This seems like vintage Kerry — a day late and a dollar short.

Barack Obama may appreciate the sentiment, but he’s not likely to get much of a boost from this endorsement. Considering the stink still coming from his 2004 campaign, it’s more likely to repel voters than to attract them.
