He won't endorse him, but Oklahoma Congressman Dan Boren says he'll still vote for Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention.

Boren is the lone Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegation. He calls Obama "the most liberal senator" in Congress. And despite Obama's pledge to work with Republicans, Boren says he sees nothing in the candidate's record to support working in what he calls "a bipartisan fashion."

Boren says he's just watching out for the voters in his mostly rural district in eastern Oklahoma. In his words, "I have to listen to them."

In the February primary, Hillary Rodham Clinton carried Boren's district with 66 percent of the vote.
