“I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton for President because I know her and admire her,” said Lockyer, who I remember seeing at Clinton’s fundraiser Feb. 23 in San Francisco. “She’s been my good friend and our state’s great ally for more than a decade. Nobody understands Californians, the California Dream, and the vital importance of California to our nation’s success better than Hillary Clinton. And Hillary Clinton is — far and away — the only candidate who is ready to lead the country now, without any on-the-job training.”

Said Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, D-San Francisco: “Hillary is the most qualified candidate and is ready to lead this country from day one. Hillary knows the White House, Congress, and has the respect of world leaders. Most importantly, Hillary has been longtime advocate for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, and I know that she will continue her commitment when she becomes president.”

Clinton will address the California Democratic Party‘s convention at 10:15 a.m. tomorrow at the San Diego Convention Center.

      Some of the people on this list who have endorsed Clinton give us reasons not to support her. I’m certainly not impressed. I believe Sen. Hillary and ex-President Clinton who did NOTHING about global warming are political and morally bankrupts. They care more about their own careers than the welfare of this country. Bill pushed Al Gore to stop challenging his stolen presidential election to pave the for Hillary to run and Bill and Hillary are both pushing themselves again even though the polls show that people dislike Hillary and prefer Republican candidates to her. I don’t know why democrats are so dumb and won’t wake up to the fact that they will doom us in 2008 AGAIN just like Kerry, Dukakis and all the rest of the bland democratic opportunists who have no program or plan to offer Americans who are hurting economically in this country. They are the wealthy, they represent the wealthy, and have no interest in anything but power for power’s sake. Never before has a presidential election been so important. Heaven help us while year in and year out these DLCer Democrats from the rule the day in the Democratic Party. We need Al Gore who has the vision and a program for carrying it out. We need to get a huge grassroots movement going to RUN AL GORE and save us from the Clintons and another Democratic defeat!
