Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

McGovern embraces, then drops Clinton

Oh, snap.

Former South Dakota Sen. George McGovern was once all about Sen. Hillary Clinton, and now he's all:

"Hillary, of course, will make the decision as to if and when she ends her campaign. But I hope that she reaches that decision soon so that we can concentrate on a unified party capable of winning the White House next November."

McGovern added he has no regrets about endorsing Clinton months ago, but now throws his weight behind Sen. Barack Obama, who had a pretty sweet Tuesday.

It's time to unite the Democratic party, McGovern concluded.
