Sen. Dodd endorses Obama for president

(AP) - Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut has endorsed Barack Obama, his former rival in the Democratic presidential race.

"He's ready to be president and I am ready to support him in this campaign" Dodd said at a joint news confernece with Obama.

He said Obama "has been poked and prodded, analyzed and criticized, called too green, too trusting and for all of that has already won" more than half the states and millions of votes.

Dodd was an early dropout in the campaign, quitting after the lead-off Iowa caucuses.
