(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."
GO LIZ! GO HILLS!
Why do you always moderate everything I write? Could it be it is the truth and you don't want that do you?
Hillary is a smart liar who knows how to bend, manipulate, cover up and distort the truth. But the voters in Indiana, North Carolina and the rest of America are on to her! What she fails to realize is that we can think for ourselves. We're smart, too! Say NO to Hillary Clinton and the politics of the past! ANYBODY BUT HILLARY IN '08!
I'm Sallie Mae and I approve this message!
shes old and out dated like hillary
who is Liz Taylor?
no sens another stupid woman who divorcedseveral times
and ths is the value of american pride?
this is not even news
Definitely will be following this advice, NOT!!! Don't need advice from someone who has been married 8 times. She will probably switch to Obama on Monday. Stich to what you know dear, writing checks and getting rice in your hair.
Well, Liz, everyone can change their mind once the honeymoon is over... you did. The honeymoon for Hillary was over a long time ago... it's time for a divorce.
Go back to sleep Lizzie. Your comments mean nothing to the world.
Clinton is not a strong, independent woman. She is nothing more than a feminist doormat. Most women with far fewer resources would not have stayed with a spouse like Bill Clinton. But she needs his filthy lucre and network to get what she wants. Heaven help this country if they return to the White House.
Wow, that'll really persuade me. Is she serious?
She's still alive? Is she a superdelegate? If not, who cares....
CNN- Can we possibly get some news today?
Is she still alive?
I'm glad one of these celebrity backers are actually paying attention to the issues that actually matter. I say good choice, she actually picked someone that has solutions that would not only change but benefit the American people.
Yeah, because the endorsement of a 76 year old actress actually counts. I can't wait until Michael Jackson and his monkey endorse John McCain.
Hillary saying to Bill O'Reilly,
"Rich people, God bless us. We deserve all the opportunities to make sure our country and our blessings continue until the next generation."
Who are the elitists again ? Formerly for Hiillary , now....
Rob from NC
Thank you Mrs. Taylor.
I know you will get disgusting attacks from the acid tongue Obama supporters for your comment. But again, tough ladies like you and Mrs. Clinton are probably used to these cruel attacks.
It takes an actress to know an actress.Hillary will make a great puppet.
...and she has always defended Wacko Jacko...'nuff said.
OH YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! THIS WAS NOT WORTH PRINTING.
An old uneducated white woman for Clinton!
Talk about the past.
Hey Clinton supporters...SCOREBOARD!!!
Liz also supports Michael Jackson. She is a very good friend to people in desperate need of help.
How may men you married, liberal woman?
