NC Gov. Mike Easley to endorse Hillary Clinton

CHARLOTTE (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton has won the endorsement of North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley in a surprise boost to her Democratic presidential candidacy. Easley is expected to announcement his support tomorrow morning at N.C. State's McKimmon Center, a week before the May 6 primary in which Barack Obama is the favorite. Clinton adviser Tom hendrickson says the endorsement will help boost Clinton's momentum in the state where she, her husband and daughter have campaigned regularly. Clinton spent today campaigning across the state, ending in Charlotte. Elon University Poll Director Hunter Bacot said the endorsement may help move Clinton's numbers a few percentage points. He also says the nod will solidify support among conservative Democrats such as Easley. Easley also is one of the superdelegates likely to choose the party's presidential nominee. He would be the second superdelegate from the state to endorse Clinton. Six of its 17 superdelegates have endorsed Obama. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

I know why the Dems have Superdelegates

They have superdelegates because they know what is best for their democratic supporters. They don't trust you, the democratic citizens in this country to make the correct choice for a presidential candidate. If you don't choose who they want, they can over power the popular vote and choose the one they would rather have. Do you think they are crazy? Do you think they would let you, the lowly unimportant democrats make this kind of important decision? They are suppose to represent the people but instead they think they are the only important ones educated enough to make this decision. And you thought your vote counted.......LOL SEE how they have you people fooled into believing anything they say.......LOL

I am a person..

It is great when governers of the state act like crazed crackheads.. it makes me know I am not too bad of a human being...


Isn't it interesting that the Democratic Party have Superdelegates? I have always heard that they wanted everyone to be treated equally. However, when it comes to something as important as an election some members have more of a vote than others. How fair is this? I thought all were created equal in their eyes... Also, Mike is only trying to look after his future. He know Obama is going to win, but when he runs for the Senate he wants Hillary's support and thinks it will mean more that Obama support..

With that endorsement, it

With that endorsement, it makes up my mind to vote for Obama. Thanks Governor, you gave me an easy choice.

i agree

hopefully whoever gets to be the elected wont be evil as Mike easely is hes a lying, no good, waste of time and a theif stills from the roads to make things that he uses as "hey look i did that" things

Voting for Obama

Do you own a firearm, or even think that you may want to own one some day? Better not vote for Obama -OR- Hillary.


where are you from , and is that how much you disapprove of your Govenor if you are from that stae that you would risk 4 more years of hell and disgrace just to spite your Govenor. Open up your close mind and listen to both Clinton and Obama . Obama only has beautiful words but nothing in concrete plans on how he will go about reaching them. Please, Dont do this to us .Be open minded the man is not ready yet maybe in 4 more years. TR
