Along with Governor's Rendell endorsment, here are a two more cool endorsements for Hillary.

From the Kansas City Star of Missouri:

"In the Democratic contest, the top candidates all show a solid grasp of the public's general dissatisfaction with the economy and the disappointments in Iraq and Afghanistan. They have spotlighted health-care reform as well.
In our view, however, Sen. Clinton would be the top choice for the Democratic nomination. She is a woman of obvious intelligence with a strong commitment to reform on health care, taxes, energy, immigration, education and global warming."

They continued:

"And Clinton gives voters a clear picture of what she has in mind. On health care, for instance, she offers a comprehensive program that would allow people to keep their current insurance coverage or choose from among the health plans available to members of Congress.
Despite her strong differences with Republicans, she has shown the ability to work with some of them in Congress. And from years of experience in Washington, she speaks thoughtfully about what the federal government can and can't do.
Clinton has used her years in the Senate to develop considerable expertise in defense issues, serving on the Armed Services Committee."

One last point I will list and you can read the rest at

"As first lady and then a senator, Clinton developed a thorough knowledge of the world and many national or regional leaders.
She understands the need for more effective American diplomacy to deal with problems ranging from terrorism to global warming."

And from the House Intelligence Chairman Silvestre Reyes of Texas:

"America needs a leader who can start solving problems and changing direction on day one. That leader is Hillary Clinton... Both at home and abroad she has the experience and qualifications to move our nation forward. She knows and understands the unique challenges facing communities along the U.S.-Mexico border, such as access to health care. I have worked with her on issues facing the Armed Services committees in Congress, and know she will be a strong leader on military and intelligence issues at this critical time in our nation's history."

Of course Gov. Rendell is the big endorsement, but the other two aren't bad.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
