Transit union endorses Clinton

Clinton won a big union endorsement Thursday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton was endorsed by the Amalgamated Transit Union Thursday.

The ATU represents 180,000 bus drivers, light rail operators, maintenance workers and other transit employees in 46 states.

In a written statement, the ATU said it would work to educate its members about the New York senator's campaign and "mobilize its U.S. members and their families in the early primary states in support of her nomination."

    "IOWA LOVES CLINTON IN 2008" I love it.
    Dan, TX, "she may be the nominee" that's only we need right now, later,it will be a piece of cake at General Election, Hillary will march all the way to White House, because there's no Presidential materials in GOP candidates. Voters are smarter than them.

    CNN did not do anything wrong. CNN should not apologize for anything. Anyone in this country has the right to spweak. I wonder why if someone praise Obama you guys don't say a thing. Anyone praise Hillary you guys are mad. At least CNN give every candidate chance to talk, SMNBC doesn't.

    Dan in TX,

    you must be so busy and posting everywhere. Unfortunetely, your posting is so shallow because you don't do your homework. Do you have a job or you are paid to post here for Obama ? They should hire a better qualified person to do the job. Don't loose yourself for the things you don't fully know. Get real, Obama is not the candidate we need, he is a good guy, but we need a leader, especially in our country's situation now. Don't be personal, have a good day.

    This is a great endorsement. In spite of what the media claims, real middle class America is going for Clinton. Her plans and policies are the most beneficial to those who need it most-the hard working middle class. To the nay sayers, dont be so hateful. Hillary has the best chance of defeating the republicans and I agree that its time for the Democrats to stop playing games and rally around the one true candidate who can win. Obamas distortion on health care and his shady tactics will backfire, real people know a real con when they see it. Hillary will win and America will be better off.

    Ike from VA is right. Republicans have rooted for Obama from the beginning, hoping to dislodge support from Hillary. They hope folks will forget Hillary's public service,in favor of promises of "hope" and "new politics." Some folks admit Obama has virtually no track record, and was even absent on a key Iran policy vote, because he was ourt campaigning. The Democratic Party will need a lot more than a big smile,blind ambition and hypocrisy to take back the White House. The GOP knows Hillary is the answer, and they're shaking in their boots.

    I'm so sick and tired of reading whenever Clinton is endorsed even by the slightest roadrunner and Obama's endorsements never get trumpted equally. Boo CNN. Unfair!!!
