Joe Wilson Endorses Hillary Clinton

Valerie Plame’s husband, Joe Wilson, has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president on a conference call with liberal bloggers. Taylor Marsh, for one, is quite excited: “This is a huge deal for Candidate Clinton and a big endorsement for her candidacy. That it was broken on the blogs sends a powerful signal.”

My guess is the signal is that it actually isn’t a huge deal.

  1. I can’t imagine that there is a single voter out there trying to decided between Obama and Clinton who would hear this news and have it tip the balance.

    The hits just keep coming for McCain. First his second quarter results, now Wilson declines to endorse him. I’m shocked that the GOP let Wilson get away.

  3. I’m shocked. Shocked.

    Did he fax her his resume too?

    I don’t know what plans Hillary would have for Joe, but I would be willing to bet Bill would not mind a sleepover with Val.

    Clinton’s gonna have trouble with the DKos wing of the blog. As ST notes, by itself this won’t do much, but if endorsements like this come in, it very may well tip some people into her….um….cup.

  6. I can hardly wait to see who endorses her next. yawn
