(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."
One great woman endorses another !!!
AND they are BOTH survivors :)
She's heavily medicated. Remember the howling????
You're kidding me, right? Since when did anybody listen to anything ole Liz says? Yikes!
CLINTON–YOU GO GIRL!!!!! I really can't see in my most wild political dreams, Obama getting this entire nation out of the mess it is in, BUT, with a wildcat like Clinton, &*it will definitely get accomplished,
VOTE CLINTON OR GET STUCK WITH A DEADBEAT OR A WAR MUNGER.
God bless you mam. Wise choice.
Elizabeth Taylor backing HRC...
I enjoy this news..
Obama 08 !
If they choose wisely and well they will not choose Hillary.
Sorry Oldtimer.... can't endorse your favoritte person... it is time for a new era in the US politic, it is time for CHANGE.... No to old style politic...
Clearly Elizabeth Taylor is a dummy too... that's why she is an actress, not a politician.
I love Elizabeth But unfortunatly alot of young people are probably saying who the hell is she so I doubt she will make much difference.But I am encouraged by the endorsement Way to go cleopatra
Well add one more superdelegate vote for Clin... wait.
Elizabeth Taylor isn't a superdelegate?
She needs to Back McCain,The democrats only offer controlled socialisium. i won't vote for any one who doesn't believe in the second Amend.
Thank you Ms. Taylor for supporting Hillary Clinton.
and how many times did LT pick the wrong husband?
instead of "winning the votes" how about earning the votes.
Obama earned mine.
Yes We Can!
Not much of an endorsement coming from Liz. In her younger days she had the morals of a cat.
AND WE ALL KNOW THAT ELIZABETH TAYLOR KNOWS A LOT ABOUT GOOD JUDGMENT ! HOW MANY MARRIAGES????
One strong woman knows another when she sees her.
Okay, if Liz told me to give money to AMFAR, or to take an HIV test, I'm all for it. That's her area of expertise.
She need to go and find all of the men that has left out of her life.
When do we stop worrying about the thoughts of celebs? She lost her relevance years ago. Kind of funny how y'all slipped in that she "weighs in". Freudian slip?
Birds of the same feather!!!!
Yeah, because ol Liz is really in touch with what this country needs.
Great article over at the Huggington post about the media hit that has been pulled out of the GOP playbook and slapped on Obama.
I love Elizabeth Taylor ... and I agree with her 100%.
