Clinton surrogate and Machinists union President Tom Buffenbarger: “Give me a break!

While I’m probably leaning toward Obama at the moment, I don’t find him as transcendent and transformational as a lot of people seem to — but this is simply not a characterization of his supporters rooted in reality.
