Former DNC Chair endorses Clinton

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Joe Andrew announced Thursday he was endorsing Sen. Hillary Clinton for president.

“I have seen her up close – her intellect, character, and fortitude – and I am convinced she is the best prepared to handle these challenging times,” Andrew said in a statement released by the New York Democrat’s campaign.

Andrew was head of the DNC from 1999 to 2001 and was one of the youngest national chairmen in the Democratic Party’s history.

    It's a shame he couldn't endorse the real winner.

    I agree with you Bethany in St Louis, OBAMA is the Democrats best chance of winning the white house. If he candidate you can count on my vote, if it's Hillary I will not vote.
