Here’s the tweet:
Jim Clyburn is a voice of powerful moral clarity that is heard loud and clear across this country — in our capital and beyond. He reminds us why we’re in public service in the first place — and I’m proud to have his support. pic.twitter.com/6Lh970vjYu

Endorsements don’t seem to mean as much as they used to, but Clyburn’s is still a pretty big deal. I don’t think there’s much of a chance for an upset in South Carolina — Biden is expected to win, and he almost certainly will.
As loathsome and regrettable as it is, the media narrative following South Carolina’s vote may make a difference. If Biden wins narrowly, they may choose to spin it as a negative. If it’s a blow-out, the Beltway gang may make Biden’s political resurrection the big story leading up to Super Tuesday.
Meanwhile, millions of people are already voting across multiple states. After the rubble is cleared away from this primary season, maybe we need to rethink the timing of the debates in light of early voting? I don’t know, and I’m glad it’s not my job to figure it out.
