Former Gov. Warren Hearnes endorses Clinton

Wednesday, January 9, 2008

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A second former Missouri governor is now endorsing Hillary Clinton's bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Warren Hearnes announced his support Wednesday, a day after Clinton's come-from-behind win in the New Hampshire primary. Hearnes was elected in 1964 and again four years later.

Bob Holden, who was elected governor in 2000 and served one term, also is supporting Clinton. Others backing the New York senator include former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay and Emanuel Cleaver, a congressman from Kansas City.

Clinton's leading opponent for the nomination, Barack Obama, is supported by two St. Louis congressmen, William Lacy Clay and Russ Carnahan, along with St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley.

Well, in that case... I guess I'll have to support Clinton! Ha! Ha! Ha!

My goodness I guess it will be the deciding factor for me too, thekid. I have debated and debated about who I should vote for and now I know that with his endorsement it is easy to know who to vote for. I have always let the media reports on who endorses who make my decisions easier.

Laught all you want, Hillary is going to be our next President, and I'm looking forward to it.
