Livin’ La Vida Clinton

Martin endorsed Clinton Thursday.

Martin endorsed Clinton Thursday.

(CNN) – Puerto Rican pop star Ricky Martin said Thursday that he will shake his bon-bon for Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic nomination.

“Whether fighting for better education, universal health care and social well-being, as First Lady and Senator from New York - representing millions of Latinos –she has always fought for what is most important for our families," Martin said.

Clinton said she was honored to earn the Grammy Award winner’s support.

“He is a very important voice in the Latino community and together we will work to improve the lives of families and children across the country,” Clinton said in a statement.

Puerto Rican voters head to the polls Sunday.

    some women just don't understand what it means to move to the top and work hard, every women should appreciate what she's doing the ones who don't are being made to look at themselves and the ones who don't like her or appreciate here are afraid they'll be expected to work that hard and they don't know how or don't want to. Real women appreciate what she's doing, real women aren't afraid of what she's doing

    How pathetic that Hillary feels "honored" that Martin "supports" her.

    She must be really hard up for "support." She is clinging to straws now. One more wave of super delegates for Obama, and hopefully, we will never have to hear from this divisive, self-centered person ever again.

    Prediction: Hillary wins PR by 12%. Her campaign dreams up some amazing story about how PR "counts" so much more than other states, especially caucus states. Her supporters continue to lap it up like puppies. Hillary is loca for power and her supporters are loca with delusion...

    you have been fooling me, and million's of other's... This is just a Computer Game... You're not seriously going to carry on this Crazyness... Obama think's he's the deliverer, of Life Everlasting? You have Hillary Clinton as some witch of the past.... John McCain as the Mystic/Mentor. Pelosi as the 'Mad Witch' of the West...
    The suspense is just about killing me......

    With Ricky Martin by her side she is unstoppable. As an Obama supporter I am very scared that this will sway all the remaining Supers to flock to her side.

    This post may or may not, and in fact does contain sarcasm.

    All you Obama fans; just wait and see the Democratic Party burn in November when this weak candidate of yours loses the general election to McCain. Lets see who will be "loca" at that point!!!! You are all going to be so desparately sorry, that you won't be able to look each other in the eye! Just you wait, Mr. Obama, just you wait!!!

    Ricky who? You mean the one hit English song wonder of "Livin La Vida Loca" fame.

    An endorsement by Ricky Martin is just as useless as the results from the Puerto Rico primary. If Hillary win, expect spin and more spin from a territory that doesn't vote in the general election. If Obama wins, this only means he will be the presumptive nominee after the results of the June 3rd primaries. If Obama loses Puerto Rico, Obama will be the presumptive nominee by June 9th.

    Even Ricky Martin knows that Obama is no good!
