(CNN) - Pennsylvania Rep. John Murtha announced Tuesday he's backing Hillary Clinton's White House bid.
In a statement, Murtha said Clinton is "the candidate that will forge a consensus on health care, education, the economy, and the war in Iraq.
"I've known Senator Clinton for fifteen years," he said. "I know that she continually reaches out for opinions and ideas not just from our nation's leaders, but from all Americans."
Murtha’s announcement comes several weeks before the critical Pennsylvania Democratic presidential primary. He is also the latest so-called Democratic “Super Delegate” to choose sides in the contest between Clinton and Barack Obama. According to CNN's latest estimate, Clinton leads Obama among super delegates by 30, though that margin is significantly less than it was before Super Tuesday.
Talk about your OLD politics...
Murtha made the right decision.
HELP WANTED EXPERIENCE NEEDED
It wouldn't make a difference. The math speaks for itself. She would need to have at least 70% of the vote overall to win the election. I don't see any possible way other than to cheat. If, she cheats it will be un-american and will not be americas favorite former first lady or President.
Obama has addressed an issue today that even she can begin to relate too, other than criticize it. By far he has proven that he can deal with complex issues that can be dealt with without have to whine, or call cheap shots.
Go Obama Go
Uh, little late, John – Hillary has already lost.
Hillary is the best choice of all the candidates. Great job, Murtha!
