That famously loyal friend and fearless leader George McGovern has decided that his endorsement of Hillary Clinton is no longer valid. The losing 1972 Democrat presidential candidate says he urged Hillary to drop out of the Democratic presidential race and has endorsed her rival, Barack Obama.
After watching the returns from the North Carolina and Indiana primaries the other night, McGovern said it's virtually impossible for Clinton to win the nomination. So, he's simply walking away from her. McGovern said he had a call in to former President Clinton to tell him of the decision, adding that he remains close friends with the Clintons.
"I will hold them in affection and admiration all of my days," he said of the Clintons.
Oh yeah, sure. You remember McGovern: He's the guy who said he was 1000% behind his own running mate, Tom Eagleton before he dropped Eagleton and replaced him with Kennedy brother-in-law Sargent Shriver. Some friend!
