Gavin Newsom Endorses Hillary Clinton

Gavin Newsom endorsed Hillary Clinton's presidential bid Friday, the latest in a string of prominent Californians who are throwing their support behind the New York Democrat.

Newsom will co-chair the campaign with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa who officially endorsed Clinton's bid last May. The senator has also won endorsements from California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Rep. Jane Harman, and Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez.

Of course, you recall Villaraigosa, like Newsom, has been the subject of a City Hall sex scandal, having admitted to an extramarital affair last month.

“Hillary Clinton has been fighting for progressive values for decades and she has shown us all that she is ready to lead our country as we face enormous challenges.”

California, one of the many states to move up its primary to February 5, will likely play a key role in determining the presidential nominees.

However, expect Condoleezza Rice to be the First Lady in the White House (NOT a "First Lady," but the First Lady President). Trust the Green Party to find a way to get their Man elected, even if "The Man" is Condi, Not George W. Al Gore, enjoy your Oscar as a lovely consolation prize. Condi, a Stanford alum, attended funeral services for football legend, Coach Bill Walsh today - RIP.
