This and That

* Hillary Clinton on the Iraq war funding vote and a recommendation to the president:

Clinton said if Bush vetoed such legislation passed by both the House and Senate, he would “be willing to veto the will of the American people.”

* From the same article, another not very important endorsement, but Billie Jean King also endorsed Clinton.

* Other recent endorsements include Geraldine Ferraro and Tom Vilsack.

* Kim Gandy, president of NOW, on the Clinton blog:

At this time in our history, this country needs strong, experienced and principled leadership to restore faith in our government and repair its credibility at home and abroad, and to end the destructive policies that have eroded our civil liberties and increased injustice and inequality in our society.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is just such a leader. She has a long history of support for women's empowerment, and her public record is a testimony to her leadership on issues important to women in the U.S. and around the globe. She has eloquently articulated the need for full economic, political and social equality for women in every institution of society, taking action throughout her career - as a lawyer, community leader, First Lady, Senator and candidate for the presidency - to advance the civil and human rights of women and girls.

*I'll try to be less time between future posts, but no promises.
