Speaking to Nigerian reporters Wednesday in the town of Abuja, Carter responded to a question about the prolonged race for the Democratic nomination."We are very interested in the primaries," Carter said, according to the Nigerian newspaper This Day. "Don't forget that Obama won in my state of Georgia. My town, which is home to 625 people, is for Obama. My children and their spouses are pro-Obama. My grandchildren are also pro-Obama. As a superdelegate, I would not disclose who I am rooting for, but I leave you to make that guess."
James: This would be a major coup for Barack Obama as Carter is a well respected international figure who knows the kind of leader needed to balance American interests with foreign relations. President Carter is also a highly respected Noble Price Laureate which gives him even more weight with the international community.
