Candidates make a big show of endorsements. Witness the rally held by Sen. Barack Obama on Tuesday, when he received the endorsements of Sen Ted Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy.

Today, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger endorsed Sen. John McCain, calling him an “extraordinary leader.” In New York, Rudy Giuliani also endorsed McCain.

But do endorsements really make a difference to the average voter?

Would an endorsement change your vote or help you make up your mind? Does it matter to you that local Reps. Lynn Woolsey and Mike Thompson have endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton?

Is there a local or national political figure who could sway your vote with their endorsement?

Let us know.
