A further sign that things are coalescing behind the Illinois senator?

From CNN:

Most of the seventeen Democratic senators who have remained uncommitted throughout the primaries will endorse Barack Obama for president this week, CNN has learned.

Two sources familiar with the sessions said the endorsements will come sometime later this week.

The 15 uncommitted Senate superdelegates are meeting this afternoon to discuss how to proceed on making their endorsements and are likely to back Sen. Barack Obama in the next couple of days, sources tell Politico.
