Sioux Falls, S.D. (AP) -- Former Sen. George McGovern, who backed Hillary Rodham Clinton, is urging her to drop out of the Democratic presidential race.
McGovern said Wednesday he has decided to endorse Barack Obama.
After watching the returns from the North Carolina and Indiana primaries Tuesday night, McGovern says it's virtually impossible for Clinton . . .

Her hero, none the less! Lol!
I wouldn’t trust George McGovern with a 3-minute egg(his WW2 accomplishments excepted - but that’s it).
speaking of people not to take advice from
The fat lady is clearing her throat...
She doesn't get mad, she gets even. First she will try and punish legislatively. What she can't get done that way will get done via the smear.
These people have no idea the level of hell that is about to be turned loose on them.
No, I think he's the 'beard'.
Yeah. Who could forget the McGovern landslide of ‘72.
Looks like the Clinton Body Count will have new members...
McGovern knows losers.
I’m sure George was giving Hillary the same “1000%” backing he gave his first vice presidential running mate Tom Eagleton.
Political advice from McGovern... LOL!

Who only won one state in ‘72 (maybe won D.C. too, I can’t

This is why those anti-Operation Chaos trolls were pushing obama. If Clinton could have won Ind. with more margin we would not be having this discussion today.
I can’t imagine her giving up yet. She HAS to have some dirty tricks left to play.
She has to have consequences waiting for those who bail. If she gets pushed out, someone’s gonna suffer.
Why should she drop out? Obama doesn’t even have a simple majority of the delegates?
Take this one all the way to the Democrat Convention, Hillary.
McGovern is WHY there are Superdelegates in the Democrat system TODAY. To avoid that boondoggle again.
McGovern’s endorsement of Obama should be seen as a kiss of death to his campaign.
Boy, they are bringing out the heavy hitters, eh?
“McGovern says he is calling former President Clinton to tell him of the decision and adds that he remains close friends with the Clintons.”
Well, heh heh, you USED to be close friends with them. You’re on their s*** list now, pal.
First Clark, now McGovern... I’m starting to see an organized pattern here by the DNC to try and push her out of the race.
She now has party elders (Wesley Clark, George McGovern, Howard Dean) urging her to drop out. Fine. Maybe she will. She probably expects Obama to do very poorly in the general. She can then come back for 2012 and say, "I had the electability. I knew it, but you couldn't see it. You told me to drop out. You threw me under the bus. And we lost terribly. Now -- it's my turn, don't give me any lip. Just hand me the nomination."
McGovern, earlier Weasley Clark ... when will she hear from Kerry, AlGore, and Dukakis? The long list of losers dispensing advice is priceless!
I wonder what deals will be made???
Well, if anybody is an expert at losing...
Just slap a Wide Load sign and a reverse buzzer alarm on her and back her pantsuit out of it .. gracefully, well, as gracefully as a Clinton can, anyway.
Now, about the other sinking ship.. ;-)
Ashtray Deflector Shield up....
Oh man, you are so absolutely, 100% correct.

I've got a current one for them:
MASSACHUSSETTS: FIRST IN COMMUNISM
She may not have the clout. Of course, there are ways, but none of them are legal. It kind of reminds me of the old movie, “Marie Antoinette”. When she was riding high, everyone bent over backwards to kiss up to her. But when her fortunes changed, she had to fend for herself. In fact, she was set up, according to the movie, by one of her closest confidants to go to the guillotine. (I’m sure this isn’t historically accurate, but it makes my point).
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the similarity of her pant suits to chaiman mao suits?
McGovern better stay out of DC area parks ...
Its a different country today. Its not gonna happen this time, but there will soon come a time, I’m afraid, when an America-hating POS like BHO will win the white house.
Exactly. There will be more before the week is out. My money’s on RFK2 being the next deserter.
Didn’t Bill screw McGovern’s daughter at one time?
Chairman Mao’s suits only needed 1/3 the fabric.
OBAMA HAD ALREADY TOLD HER TO LEAVE - http://youtube.com/watch?v=w3HZC_sy-6A
Does anyone even listen to that boob? He gave a very long and meaningless speech at our high school in Sioux Falls in 1968. It was absolutely mind-numbing and felt like all intelligence was being sucked right out of you. It was no suprise a few years later when I and most others voted against him. He, like my current (soon to be gone) senator Hagel is nothing more than a windbag pimple on the ass of time.
Sheesh, he may be the biggest scumbag in America not named modell.
Did Weasley tell her to drop out?
“...windbag pimple on the ass of time.”
The Rush haters on FR must be feeling really good today with more "pressure" on Hilderbeast to drop out so the RAT party can unify behind Obamessiah. Then they can spend all their time and money tearing up Republicans instead of using the ammo against each other.
The Rush haters on FR and their conterparts on DU both feel things would be sooooo much better if we had just "put a stake thur Hillary's heart" months ago and let the mainstream media hand Obama the Dem nomination on a silver platter.
Interesting how these "conservatives" have the same views as the commies on this election. All they'd have to do is add a sentence or two about how Hillary voted for "Bush's war" and their posts would identical to the garbage posted on DU.
And as my tagline notes, does anyone remember when we took the advice of the loudmouths on FR who demanded we "drive a stake through Gary Condit's heart while he's down" because "we CANNOT risk ANY chance this man goes back to Congress". Condit was a huge albatross hanging out the Dems necks and those "conservatives" kept demanding he get destroyed in the RAT primary as soon as possible. They got their wish. The Dems should thank those "conservatives" for endursing "Dem unity" in November to keep that seat in socialist hands forever.
People in SD voted him out in 1980, then turned around in 1986, thereafter and returned McGovernism in the personage of Daschle.
THANK YOU, Commander Limbaugh, for your valiant and successful execution of Operation Chaos!
