Perez Hilton Endorses Hillary Clinton
Posted on February 5, 2008Well, this has to be some kind of political first. Perez Hilton has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. He explains why he switched from Obama:
We think all the gossip blogs should endorse a candidate. As soon as we figure out whether our state votes or not today (apparently there is mass confusion with people trying to vote in Texas, Washington and other non-Super Tuesday states) we'll get right on that.Not that our opinion matters (any more than yours). Nor do we expect that we will influence your vote in any way, but...
Today is Super Tuesday and we feel it is our duty to publicly endorse Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic candidate that will be the next President of the United States.
As we have previously stated, Hillary wasn't our fist choice. We were initially swayed by the promise of change and the inspiring messages of Barack Obama. But that's not enough! After careful consideration and much research, we have come to the informed decision that Hillary is the right candidate for us.
We feel more confident with Hillary's abilities to lead and her proven track record of experience. But, more so than that, HER plans for universal healthcare, education reform and emphasis on equality for all are more aligned with what we want in the next President.
We watched the debates and Clinton just won us over.
Barack is great. But Hillary is the better leader, for us. However, Obama MUST stay in the picture. This country needs him, just as we need Clinton.
It's been a great and heated campaign thus far, but we sincerely hope when it comes time for the Democratic convention that the Clinton/Obama dream ticket will be a reality
