Feinstein said we need a president who can restore America’s standing worldwide while addressing crucial issues at home, who can rebuild confidence in government and demand accountability, and who can nominate mainstream U.S. Supreme Court justices. She described Clinton as “a woman of strength and compassion who has a powerful voice” and said she has been “deeply impressed with how Hillary has handled herself in the Senate.”

Clinton said she admires Feinstein’s ability to work across party lines to achieve results: “She has been someone to whom I’ve turned for advice and counsel.”

Feinstein berated a Los Angeles radio reporter who asked Clinton how she felt about the marital infidelity of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who also has endorsed her; she said Clinton has bigger things to think about than this. Clinton basically agreed it’s not an issue.
