Sen. McCaskill On Colbert Report

Sen. Claire McCaskill, the Missouri Senator and national co-chair for Barack Obama's presidential campaign, stopped by the Colbert Report last night.

During the appearance, McCaskill said her kids helped convince her to give Obama the all-important nod.

"They told me I was being a big chicken and that I was worried about what people would think of me... and that I wasn't following my heart, that I should get out there and do what I thought was right instead of what would protect me politically," McCaskill said.

If you didn't stay up late last night, here's the clip.
