Easley: Clinton 'gets it'

Gov. Mike Easley endorsed Hillary Clinton today.

At a rally at N.C. State's McKimmon Center, the two-term governor said he supported Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Easley said he first met Clinton at a Jefferson-Jackson breakfast when she was the First Lady of Arkansas and he was a prosecutor.

"It's time for somebody to be in the White House who understands the challenges that we face in this country," he said.

Easley said Clinton "gets it" — the link between education and economic development —. He also promoted North Carolina's efforts at promoting biotechnology.

"There was a lot of 'Yes we can' and 'Yes we should' going around," he said. "Hillary Clinton is ready to deliver. That's the difference."

He said he enjoyed watching his wife, Mary Easley, talk with Clinton before the event began.

"There's nothing I love more than a strong powerful woman," he said.

Governor Mike who? Has someone been occupying that office?

Re: Easley: Clinton 'gets it'

An 'outsider' lameduck governor, with no coattails and no political machine, endorses a candidate who might offer him a job if she wins. Hard to figure this one out, isn't it? Wait til Mr. Clinton meets Miss Mary!
