RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Schiavo, who was at the center of a passionate national end-of-life debate when his brain-damaged wife, Terri, died in March, endorsed Democrat Tim Kaine for governor Wednesday.
"I have seen firsthand what can happen when a governor disagrees with a single citizen. In Florida, Gov. Jeb Bush abused the power of his office in an attempt to replace my personal family decisions with his own opinions and political grandstanding," Schiavo wrote a six-paragraph statement distributed by a Democratic political consulting firm in Miami.
Conservatives vilified Schiavo for ordering the removal of the feeding tube that had sustained his wife for 15 years. In the resulting legal and ideological conflict, Congress, Jeb Bush and his brother, President Bush, all sought to have the tube reinserted.

Better yet, why is Schiavo endorsing anyone for VA's governor?
This is sort of like being endorsed by an axe murderer.
That is exactly why I posted it. Who cares what he thinks now?
If Michael really wanted to help Kaine, he should have endorsed Kilgore.
We've seen what happens when a man wants out of his obligations and demands his insurance payoff Mike. Wonder how your current girlfriend (wife?) feels about that?
I wouldn't mind seeing Kilgore run an ad on this over the next six days (except in NoVa).
His personal family decision????? I thought he was merely enforcing what he claimed to have been Terri's decision. Hmmmm. If he wants to get more involved in politics, he'd better get his lies straight.
Of what relevance is this guy's opinion? It is truly something to see who the DIMs dig up as spokesman for a candidate.
who is Lloyd Bentsen endorsing?
I am sure Tim Kaine is elated about this endorsement. LOL
Maybe he's becoming afraid Republicans might one day stand
together and make him pay for his crime? I sure pray that someday there will be one man enough.
I guess this will put Kilgore over.
This endorsement? Talk about the kiss of death!
This is weird. Why would someone who lives in Florida be "endorsing" a Lefty politician in Virginia? Does Schiavo vote in more than state?
Have Joe Wilson and Cindy Sheehan endorsed Kaine yet?
