Burlington, Vermont - February 22, 2008

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders says he likes both of his co-workers Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. But he will not endorse either one of them yet.

Sanders, who is an Independent, received a lot of financial help from the Democratic Party when he ran for Senate two years ago. And both Obama and Clinton gave him $10,000, the maximum donation.

But Sanders says he won't get involved in the election until after one of them is nominated.

The other two members of Vermont's Congressional Delegation, Senator Leahy and Congressman Welch have both endorsed Obama.
