Brookbit: De Blasio Endorses Obama

June 10th, 2008 · 2 Comments

From City Council Member Bill de Blasio, who has been a close associate and supporter of Sen. Hillary Clinton: “I am proud to announce my enthusiastic support for Barack Obama for President of the United States. Senator Obama is one of the most inspiring figures in recent political history and it is an honor to call him our Democratic nominee. I believe Barack Obama will help restore America’s reputation around the world and tackle the serious issues facing our country…I will campaign as hard as possible for Barack Obama so we can turn this country around and bring about the change we so desperately need.” –GL Inbox

    Surprised Bill (Profile in Courage) deBlasio didnt wait until after November 4 to issue his coveted endorsement.

    At least he wont be getting a position in the Obama administration and has little chance of doing real damage as BP.

    “Little chance of doing real damage as BP?” That’s what I thought about Marty Markowitz, before he became the official mascot of Atlantic Yards.

    Bill’s smarter than Marty, which could be good or bad.
