(CNN) - Actress Elizabeth Taylor urged voters in next week’s Democratic primaries to back Hillary Clinton's White House run, saying in a statement released Friday that the New York senator was “not a flibbertijibbet.”
“It would be magnificent for our country if Senator Clinton won the votes, hearts and minds of the people in Indiana and North Carolina on Tuesday. She’s a brilliant teacher and powerful leader. We all know what she’s about. We know what she isn’t. Senator Clinton is not a flibbertijibbet [sic]. She’s strong,” said Taylor.
“It’s also important for great leaders to have a sense of humor about themselves. The future of our great country rests in the hands of the next president. Who sits in the Oval Office will be determined greatly by the citizens of Indiana and North Carolina. In my heart, I know they will choose wisely and they will choose well.”
The actress and activist is a longtime Clinton supporter who has donated the legal maximum of $4,600 to the senator’s campaign.
In January 2007, Taylor also pointed to Clinton’s toughness as the reason she was contributing to her presidential bid. "I have contributed to Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign because she has a mind of her own and a very strong one at that," Taylor she said in a statement then. "I like the way she thinks. She is very savvy and a smart leader with years of experience in government, diplomacy and politics."
Hillary is NOT tearing apart the democratic party. Hillary is doing just what any Clinton does— take advantage of any situation given to them (e.g., Monica L., Sniper-fire; NAFTA, Michigan and FL votes etc.).
The real people splitting this party are the "bilnd" and uneducated supporters of Hillary. How can Hillary, with more negatives than any politican (except Gov. Bush), ever run a successful general election in this nation? The Republicans and Independents are praying for that day to come!!! We will have to thank, not Hillary (because she will be off somewhere with her $109 million), but her "bird-brain" supporters
Now there is an endorsement for you. Michael Jackson's biggest fan.
Thanks Lizzy.....National Velveeta is now going in the trash where it belongs
SO?!?! Liz Taylor did ONE good movie (no, not Cleopatra). Even if she'd done A HUNDRED good movies, who in the hell cares what she thinks?!?! That's like saying, "Vote Obama - George Clooney says he's neat!"
this old fart is soooooo out of touch
Was that before or after the booze and drugs? Pointless endorsement.
Sorry Liz,,, but Hillary's Goose it cooked... actually its overdone!
Well, that settles it. The last thing we need is a "flibbertijibbet." ???
And who are you again? Why does your opinion matter to the voters?
Your opinion matters only to you.
what do you know?
you are juat another crazy old lady.
trying to get a few minutes of talk time
CNN,i endorse barrack,put me on the ticker next.
i love Elizabeth Taylor and am also for Hillary Clinton..2 great women
If Elizabeth Taylor is jumping into the ring, Michael Jackson is next. Point taken in judgement – I'm definitely voting for Obama!
The Lady who won, The Grand National.. Maybe she help in this Race.
I wouldn't listen to Elizabeth Taylor if she was the last person on earth. How many times has she been married? She does not have very good judgement in her choices of men let alone tell others who to endorse for president.....Go Obama!!!!
Great Elizabeth Taylor!!!
Hillary Clinton 08 :)
the 2 old ladies
go home,do u need your walkers?
oh boy–now there's a voice of reason.
Elizabeth Taylor is as old as the Old Politics she supports.
How is this news? Elizabeth Taylor is old and decrepit. Who cares.
When did your opinion amounted to much?
Liz, you have it exactly right, Hillary is the best hope for this country!
This endorsement should carry some major weight !!!! Guess Obama has been knocked out. I didnt know Ms Taylor was still alive... I just dont keep up with those elitists..........
Ok so Elizabeth Taylor slept with how many married men? and Married Bill Clinton slept with how many women? and Hillary stayed with him to further her political carreer? No wonder they stick together.
None of the 3 have any morals and I don't want that kind of morals back in the White House.
What in the world is a flibberttiget?
Any way...Liz, you are one the best actresses of all time! You go girl!
Boy. An old actress who has had all sorts of drug and alcohol problems, been a big supporter and pal of Michael Jackson a pedophile.
Why in the world should that influence Me??? It is more significant that Clinton cabinet members have come out for Obama! And more Senators support Obama over Clinton having served with both.
Again just another old woman who wants to see a woman in the oval office.
Obama would be better than Clinton could ever hope to be. We need a leader who is truthful not one who lies every time she opens her mouth.
