MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Vice President Walter Mondale is endorsing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for president, the Clinton campaign announced Sunday.
"America is ready for change, and Hillary Clinton has the strength and experience to deliver it," Mondale said in a statement released by the campaign. "Hillary is uniquely qualified to rebuild America's standing in the world and lead this nation from her first day in the White House."
Mondale, a former U.S. senator from Minnesota, was vice president from 1977 to 1981 under President Carter. He was the Democratic nominee for president in 1984, but lost to Ronald Reagan in the general election.
Mondale also was U.S. Ambassador to Japan from 1993 to 1996.
Clinton, D-N.Y., said she was "deeply honored" to have Mondale's support.
The Republican National Committee noted with glee that it was her second endorsement by a failed Democratic presidential nominee. The other endorsement came from George McGovern, the 1972 nominee who was soundly defeated in the general election by Richard Nixon.
"Hillary Clinton's endorsement from yet another failed Democrat presidential candidate underscores concerns the American people will have with her own candidacy," said RNC spokesman Danny Diaz.
Dunno, but I’m biting my nails while waiting to find out who Dukakis is going to get behind.
If that isn’t the kiss of death, I don’t know what would be.
Wasn’t Mondales daughter one of Slicks’ conquests around same time he was doing Lewinsky?
Hmmm, the Silky Pony?
I dunno, but Geraldine Ferraro can’t be far behind. Or maybe not— Her Thighness can’t stand another woman taking a scintilla of her Queen Bee space.
...all I want to know is who will get the endorsement of Eleanor?
“We will win! We will win!”
Hoo iz Jon Cary gonna nomerate?
Elanor gave it to Hillary at #7.
Mondull.........where’s the news? Fritz and Mrs. Hillbilly.
Thanks for posting that with the proper color scheme for Commie rodent red. ;-)
When I saw that map in Posting #15, I thought of you.
Ha Ha, Mondull didn’t even win Taxachusetts. When a Democrat can’t win Taxachusetts, you know he’s got problems.
Fixed it .....
That’s from Dave Leip’s site.
Great to see all the winning candidates who have endorsed her.
These Dems have lost so many elections with their weak, anti-war, Leftist candidates, one would thing they would have learned a lesson.
US election atlas still uses the original colors.
Then we can all roll with one of the best campaign slogans of all time:
Vote for Wally and the Beaver.
They used that in ‘84, too, with Gerry Ferraro. ;-)
“Dunno, but Im biting my nails while waiting to find out who Dukakis is going to get behind.”
Edwards is ~hoping~ it will be him.
Ok then! lets get this out of the way in a hurry!! All the Marxist on the Planet supports the EVA PERON OF AMERICA.
HILLARY CLINTON. That being said we no longer have any need to occupy the digital world with which Marxist supports Eva Peron of America
Loser endorses loser

Now comes the endorsement from Walter Mondale. A friend of mine was head of Opposition Research when Ronald Reagan ran against Mondale. On the cover of their briefing book, she used a quote from another friend of mine, Gene McCarthy. It was:
"Walter Mondale has the soul of a Vice President."
Of course, in Hillary's case, she has the soul of Lady Macbeth.

Is Mondale still alive?
Remember when Dr Dean flew to have church with Jummuh “counting on” an endorsement, and Jummuh forgot, and thanked him for coming to church. LOL
I'm surprised you fellow Freepers haven't picked up on this yet, but wasn't
Wally's daughter Eleanor one of Bubba's conquests?
And if so, can it not be argued that Wally is trying to do to America what
the Slickster did to one of his children?
Evita was a freakin fascista!
Has Martin Van Buren weighed in yet? Or any of the Van Buren boys?
just for the hell of it, LOL

Why would anyone care what Mondale says, this old ânever wasâ didn’ât even make it to the ranks of a ââhas been.ââ
I remember that night. What an outrage that was.
Didn’t his daughter Eleanor “endorse” his slickness numerous times?
Experience? Doing what hey Walter?
What he actually said (drooled) was “Who are you?” “Who am I?”
Yeah but how many of those votes were not counted and people were disenfranchised? ;)
The Gore/Soros/DNC lie machine...disenfranchised voters.
According to the Starr report, Monica Lewinsky showed up for one her "counseling sessions" with President Clinton but was not admitted to the White House because the President was "in conference" with Eleanor Mondale.
Monica threw a hissy fit that embrassed the uniformed Secret Service guards.
Mondale endorsing Clinton sort of reminds me of Dr. Lewinsky's [a big Democratic donor, up to that time] reaction when he received a mail solicitation from Clinton's legal defense fund. Needless to say he was infuriated. Mondale just doesn't have any self respect.
