Hillary on Vilsack, Shared Passion

Here’s Hillary Clinton’s statement on Tom Vilsack, who bowed of the 2008 presidential race today:

“I have been proud to work with Tom Vilsack for years on the challenges facing our country, and I have a deep admiration for both Tom and Christie.

“Tom has made Iowa a leader in renewable energy and created thousands of jobs as one of America’s great governors. We share a passion for protecting America’s young people through expanded health care options, early childhood education initiatives and opening the doors to higher education to every American.

“I know he will continue to contribute to the dialogue about how to move America forward.”

Given the value of Vilsack’s endorsement in Iowa, we can probably expect the other remaining candidates to be every bit as effusive as Hillary.
