Hot on the heels of a successful bid to secure the dirty hippie vote, Barack Obama seals the deal today with an endorsement from Vermont warhorse Senator Patrick Leahy.

UPDATE: Text from the endorsement here.

"We need a president who can reintroduce America to the world, and reintroduce America to ourselves," Leahy said, later adding, "Barack Obama represents the America we once were and want to be again."

Leahy likened his support of Obama to the 1968 presidential campaign, when as a young prosecutor he endorsed Robert Kennedy over Hubert Humphrey. "He was bringing us a sense of hope, bringing us together," Leahy said. "I know those are intangibles, but it encouraged me to go against the establishment in my own state, and go with Bobby Kennedy."
