Skip to comments.Mondale Endorses (Hillary) Clinton for President
Posted on 11/04/2007 1:53:11 PM PST by tcrlaf
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.
On a hilarious note, notice the pic with this AP Story? (HEIL HILLARY!!) Somebody with skills, please post this photo QUICK, before it gets deleted!
Who’s McGovern endorsing?
“Whos McGovern endorsing?”
Can you believe AP included that pic with the story?????
Hillary of course.
Well if Mondale did endorse her, we may as well give up. We CAN’T win. Drats she would have to bring in the heavy hitters this soon. But then again.........
THAT is the one that I was waiting for
Is she going to ride a Tank with an oversized CVC helmet like Dukakis did?
The Rat nominee loser list is long, and will get another addition next year.
Just a trip down memory lane. A member of one failed administration endorses another potential failed administration.
I wonder if Mondale initiated the endorsement on his own ... or only gave it after Hillary! sent him copies of the Oval Office security camera footage taken of Bill and his daughter.
I don’t think a Mondale endorsement will affect the outcome, but it’s an indication of the level of organization in the Hilllary campaign. They probably had his endorsement wrapped up long ago, paid for by some political promise benefiting Mondale, but they saved it for a moment of need. They’re probably saving even more important endorsements for when the Peter Paul stuff hits the fan.
Has Bill given her his endorsement or is he too busy “endorsing” bimbos? See, as long as she has the endorsement of the last Dhimmicrat winner, she can point to that instead of the string of Dimcrat losers who are endorsing her. So, what will it take to get Bill to endorse her? I mean, convincingly?
Mondale? Wasn’t his daughter servicing Bill Clinton?
OMG President Reagan little b***h?
I thought the dude was dead
Really, does anyone base their vote on someone out of the past, who a lot of people don’t even know? This guy was VP back in the 70’s, to a president who may have been the worst president in our memory, who cares what he thinks.
I have a pic of her but my html skills are zero.
I have a poor memory. I bet that election was a squeaker.
