The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees endorsed Hillary Clinton for president this week. AFSCME's endorsement is an even bigger prize since the national SEIU declined to endorse any candidate last month, chapping the ass of John Edwards.
Clinton accepted the endorsement at a Washington meeting on Wednesday. Busting out a pair of red boxing gloves, Clinton told the audience, "when it comes to fighting for America's families, I'll go 10 rounds with anybody." That's...um...clever.
Edwards is not discouraged though and accepted the official backing of the Service Employee's International Union's Granite State chapter. He won the endorsement in a close vote over Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois. Edwards has already been endorsed by the union's Iowa chapter.
Not sure what AFSCME does? Watch this PSA from the 70s. No, seriously...watch it. You won't be sorry.
