Lake Wobegon for Obama

Garrison Keillor, host of public radio's "A Prairie Home Companion," has endorsed Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for president. The best-selling author and humorist wrote the following in a letter to Obama:

"I'm happy to support your candidacy, which is so full of promise for our country. Seven years of a failed presidency is a depressing thing, and the country is pressing for a change and looking for someone with clear vision who is determined to break through the rhetorical logjam and find sensible ways to move our country forward. That's you, friend."

"And of course it will be exciting to have a president who can speak with grace and power to the American people. Seeing you and your family in front of the U.S. Capitol next January is a happy prospect that would bring an end to a long sour chapter in our history."

Obama addressed a crowd of nearly 20,000 at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday, proclaiming "I've been entertained and inspired by Garrison Keillor's work through the years. As president, I will wake up every day thinking about how I can help make life better in places like Lake Wobegon all across the country."
