Mondale Endorses Clinton for President
http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D8SN2QCG0&show_article=1 ^ | 11/4/07 | AP

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.

Mondale, a former U.S. senator from Minnesota, was vice president from 1977 to 1981 under President Carter [who lost in a landslide in 1980 - 489-49 electoral]. He was the Democratic nominee for president in 1984, but lost to Ronald Reagan in the general election [also a landslide - 525-13]

Fixed it .....

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.

Actually, I'm kinda hoping for a Clinton - Mondale ticket.

For six months now, I've been worrying about whether there was any defect sufficient in Hillary and her campaign to bring her down. There were plenty of factors which SHOULD have that effect, but were there any that WOULD bring her down?

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.

And if they had run against "W" and Cheney, their slogan could have been:

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?

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.
