For Hillary Clinton the Endorsements Come Tumbling In

I once read that Hillary Clinton excels at Tetris.  Since I also am very good at that game, I have always wanted to challenge her to a face-off, but she just doesn’t have that kind of time, and, following her, neither do I.  It is appropriate, nevertheless, that this week the Democratic Party has behaved like a game of Tetris with the tiles tumbling in fast and furiously.

Earlier in the week (I can’t believe this is all in the same week), contacted by Associated Press, enough uncommitted special delegates decided to commit to Hillary on the eve of the last Super Tuesday of the primary season giving her the clinch even before the polls opened.  The next day Hillary dominated in four of the six states.

President Obama wasted no time in jumping on the Hillary bus, endorsing her today shortly after meeting privately with Senator Sanders.  Whether the timing was planned or coincidental, former presidential candidate Martin O’Malley also came out with a strong endorsement today.

Clinton finally gets the endorsement of … Martin O’Malley

Thank you, Governor O’Malley!

According to MSNBC, Elizabeth Warren, a powerhouse and darling of the left will endorse Hillary tonight on the Rachel Maddow Show.

Warren’s announcement comes the same day President Barack Obama formally backed Clinton in a video lauding her qualifications for the job.

Vice President Joe Biden also criticized Donald Trump during a speech at the American Constitution Society convention on Thursday.

Vice President Joe Biden endorsed presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for president on Thursday, hours after President Barack Obama publicly declared his support for Clinton.

“In my view, God willing, it’ll be Secretary Clinton,” Biden said, referring to the next president, during an address at the American Constitution Society convention in Washington.

Hillary also earned the endorsement of the Letter Carriers Union, the Utility Workers Union, and the Electrical Workers Union.


Hillary Clinton Statement on National Association of Letter Carriers Endorsement

Today, following the endorsement of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) and their 290,000 members, Hillary Clinton issued the following statement:

“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of the National Association of Letter Carriers.

“The Postal Service is consistently ranked as the most trusted government agency, and the brothers and sisters of NALC are one reason why. Since our nation’s founding, efficient and effective mail service has connected families and enabled commerce. Today, more than 160 billion pieces of mail travel through the postal system each year—many of them in the hands of a Letter Carrier.

“As President, I will stand with the Letter Carriers to protect workers’ fundamental rights to organize, to bargain collectively, to be safe on the job, and to retire with dignity and security. And I will work with the Letter Carriers to build a bright future for the postal system and postal workers in the 21st century. I know that the postal system is still a vital lifeline for American communities from coast to coast, and recognize the Letter Carriers’ vital role in building the American middle class.

“Above all, workers deserve a seat at the table and a champion in the White House. Because when workers are strong, families are strong—and when families are strong, America is strong.”

The Democratic Party is unifying behind Hillary very quickly while the Republicans remain in disarray over remarks by Donald Trump and the image he projects as “leader” of the party. Apparently the remarks are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potential problems posed by the presumptive nominee of the GOP who likes to cite in unspecific numbers the “many” people, “hundreds” of people who support his unfiltered comments and positions.

USA TODAY exclusive: Hundreds allege Donald Trump doesn’t pay his bills

Donald Trump casts himself as a protector of workers and jobs, but a USA TODAY NETWORK investigation found hundreds of people – carpenters, dishwashers, painters, even his own lawyers – who say he didn’t pay them for their work.

Back in October, after the first debate, I said this: ” I was proud of my party watching this debate and proudest of my candidate, Hillary Clinton, who did a superlative job.”  I am proud again today..

Look for President Obama tonight on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  The segment was recorded yesterday, before the big endorsement today.

    One of the best days of the campaign, ever! I know we have so much more work to do and there will be many ups and downs ahead, but what an amazing 48 hrs.

    Love seeing Dems begin their assault on Trump. Oh Mr. Trump, it’s the Big League now! Welcome to Thunderdome.

  2. […] Not every Hillary Clinton endorsement ends up on this page.  That is largely because they have come in a deluge that is difficult to keep up with. Republican endorsements, of course, are spotlighted here as are many high profile Democratic ones. […]
