It's a good sign for Hillary that, at this stage in the campaign, North Carolina's governor Mike Easley would endorse her

Clearly, this cycle has demonstrated that a governor's endorsement is vastly more helpful than the endorsement of a U.S. Senator.  This makes sense; Governor's have organizations and machines (think Ed Rendell).  And they actually live in the state. 

... So this isn't merely a PR move, it could actually have electoral ramifications. 

Remember, Hillary doesn't need to win NC.  If she wins Indiana, and comes close in NC, it's a "win" ...
