3 Kennedys och en svart politiker för Hillary Clinton

När Ted Kennedy och Caroline Kennedy kom ut för Hillary verkar få i media observerat vad Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Kerry Kennedy hade att säga om Hillary.

Kennedys for Clinton – Los Angeles Times

By now you may have read or heard that our cousin, Caroline Kennedy,
and our uncle, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, have come out in favor of Sen.
Barack Obama. We, however, are supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton
because we believe that she is the strongest candidate for our party
and our country.While talk of unity and compromise are inspiring to a nation wary of
divisiveness, America stands at a historic crossroads where real issues
divide our political landscapes. Democrats believe that America should
not be torturing people, eavesdropping on our citizens or imprisoning
them without habeas corpus or other constitutional rights. We should
not be an imperial power. We need healthcare for all and a clean, safe
environment.


The loftiest poetry will not solve these issues. We need a president
willing to engage in a fistfight to safeguard and restore our national
virtues.

We have worked with Hillary Clinton for 15 years (and in Kathleen’s
case, 25 years) and witnessed the power and depth of her convictions
firsthand. We’ve seen her formidable work ethic, courage in the face of
adversity and her dignity and clear head in crisis. We’ve also seen her
two-fisted willingness to enter the brawl when America’s principles are
challenged. Her measured rhetoric, political savvy and pragmatism
shield the heart of our nation’s most determined and most democratic
warrior.

Likadant verkar få ha uppmärksammat vad Maxine Waters medlem av kongressens Black Caucus hade att säga om Hillary. Hon verkar uppenbarligen precis som Jesse Jackson inte anse att Bill och Hillary är rasister.

The Associated Press: Rep. Waters Endorses Clinton

”At a time when the economy continues to worsen and so many of my constituents are losing their homes and their jobs, we need someone with the leadership and experience who can step in on day one to tackle the economic challenges our country is facing,” Waters said. ”Hillary understands the daily challenges that people are facing and she will fight for them everyday she is in the White House.”
