Bill Clinton Switches to Obama

Latest Superdelegate Defection for Hillary

In what some Democratic Party insiders are calling a particularly ominous sign for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, former president Bill Clinton today became the latest superdelegate to switch from Sen. Clinton to her rival, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill).

Sources close to the former president said that Mr. Clinton had been mulling such a defection for weeks, as early as the night of the Michigan primary, but that he only decided to make his decision public today.

“The American people want change,” Mr. Clinton said at a press conference in New York.

The former president said that “sometimes, at the end of a race, you have to put an old horse down."

Mr. Clinton fueled speculation he was seeking to distance himself from the Oval Office, or as he refered to it: "the scene of the crime."

The former president said he would rather sleep on the couch then return to the White House, calling his tenure there “lost revenue.”

For her part, Sen. Clinton said that the defection of her husband would not deter her from staying in the race, adding, “To my knowledge, he’s the only white voter Sen. Obama has.”

The New York senator denied that she was playing the race card, arguing, “Every other member of my family is supporting me, and by the way, they’re white.”

Elsewhere, a defiant John McCain said that his wife will not release her tax returns, “and neither will my girlfriend.”
