LAMEST. ENDORSEMENT. EVER.: Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) endorses Hillary Clinton in the Des Moines Register.  It’s strangely mostly about Harkin, not Hillary, but he does manage a paragraph and a sentence or two about her:

Hillary Clinton’s commitment to public service stems from the same values. Her mother, Dorothy, was abandoned by her parents and sent to live with relatives who did not want her. By age 14, she was working to support herself just to get by. Guided by her mother’s experience, Hillary has devoted her career to championing the needs of children. She has been a tireless advocate for women and families since I first met her. As First Lady of the United States she was instrumental in advancing the idea that health care should be a right and not a privilege. As my colleague in the Senate and as Secretary of State, she made women’s rights and economic opportunity central to American foreign policy. Hillary has never forgotten who she is fighting for. . . .Today, too many talented children face limits on their futures. They need a champion in the White House. I know Hillary Clinton will be that champion.

Um, okay. So we should elect Clinton because (1) her mother had a tough childhood; (2) she loves children; (3) she is a feminist; and (4) she supported socialized medicine as a “right”? Geez, Tom, is that all you’ve got?
