House Candidate Hopes for Obama Coattail Effect

The Wall Street Journal reports that Sen Obama appears in a campaign ad running in the Chicago area for Democratic House candidate Bill Foster, running for former Republican House Speaker Rep Hastert’s seat.

I suspect that a survey of Superdelegates would confirm that Sen. Obama can do more to help Democrats attract swing and cross over voters than can Sen. Clinton. If the Party’s purpose is to expand its donors, base of supporters, and presence in all levels of government then I fail to see how Sen. Clinton could do that better than Sen. Obama.
