Reed, Franklin and Young in Bloc of Hillary’s Mayoral Endorsements

Five Georgians threw their support behind Hillary Clinton on Tuesday at the African American Mayors Association.

Kasim Reed, Shirley Franklin and Andrew Young announced they were supporting Hillary (much like they did in 2008) and East Point Mayor Jannquell Peters did as well.

WABE quoted Reed saying:

“She has the proven leadership capability to be president of the United States during very difficult times..I think that, given the breadth and depth of her service to the country, that she is the right person in this race.”

Even though Joe said no today, I still don’t think Hillary wins the Democratic nomination. I’m increasingly not confident in that but I still think O’Malley is the real deal and Sanders fizzles out because he has to spend too much time explaining what is democratic socialism.

This race also reminds of 2008 when Hillary racked up the superdelegates’ votes only to have that be fruitless and 2004 when Kerry quietly was in the background waiting for the tides to turn against the frontrunner.

I’m not putting any money on my belief, however.

    I’m inclined to agree but then I looked around for a half a second at the other options. O’Malley? No way. What’s the appeal? And Sanders will fizzle like you said because when it comes down to it, he’s just too much. And Lincoln Chafee? Um…

    Oh. And didn’t we already know this about these folks from last week when Hillary released that list with like, every single dem officeholder in the state on it?
