Charlie Rangel Wants an Endorsement

President Obama is in New York Monday for the first time since making his gay-marriage endorsement. He'll be giving the commencement address at Barnard College and, in addition to graduates and their families, in the audience will be Rep. Charlie Rangel, who’s recently put pressure on Obama to publicly support him.
