Ten Guvs Still Holding Their Cards

As Stateline.org writes, 10 of the nation's Democratic governors still have not endorsed a presidential candidate in the Clinton-Obama race. And it doesn't sound like these governors -- who are superdelegates to the convention -- will tip their hat any time soon.
But the endorsements could make a big impact, Stateline says:
Of the 10 uncommitted governors, five are from states whose voters haven't yet weighed in on the choice between U.S. Sen. Barack Obama and U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for president.
Of course, the New York Times says the guvs are more focused on the vice-presidential picks. It does add an interesting twist: As a governor, do you back the candidate you most want to be president, or do you back the candidate most people in your state want?
Or do you back the candidate most likely to give you a job?
