Tilden Endorses Clinton for President ’08

The members of The Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club would like to announce their endorsement of New York State Senator Hillary Clinton for President in 2008. The Club met on October 18th for a General Meeting and overwhelmingly voted to endorse Senator Clinton. District Leader Louise Dankberg said, “Sen.Hillary Clinton deserves our endorsement as I feel she is the only candidate who can win the General Election in November 2008. She is highly intelligent, has a great campaign and has Bill Clinton. We must not be shortsighted and look for a better candidate who might be more appealing. Our aim is to take back the White House and try to fix some of the disasters of the last 7 years. All the Democratic candidates would make great Presidents,
but only Hillary can actually attain that status at this time.”
