Obama "Buries" NARAL Endorsement

Seems that MOST Press Releases about Obama's Official Endorsements are PROUDLY touted here:
(In the News)
There is absolutely NO mention of NARAL's endorsement last Wednesday (5/14) on either of those pages. You have to go here:
Why would this not be given the same weight/respect as other Endorsements (like Union Endorsements)? Why is the Obama Campaign choosing to relegate this important endorsement to the "People" (Blog) part of his website? Shame on NARAL for not demanding a prouder acceptance of their support! Shame on Women for not demanding it!
I've already been turned-off and alarmed that the entire Issue of Women's Reproductive Freedom is not deemed important enough to be listed as an "Issue" on Obama's website. Now this sends off even more alarm bells for me.
I know that Obama's supporters think this is being "extremely picky" and that it is purely a "design issue" in how his website is laid out. I disagree. Think about how would you feel if an issue YOU cared deeply about wasn't listed as one of Obama's issues? What about if his stance on Civil Rights was ONLY listed under the "People" section. Or if a MAJOR Civil Rights endorsement was only mentioned under "African Americans"?
Women are watching closely Obama. You say you want our votes? This is NOT the way you're going to get them. Badly played.
