Robert Reich for Obama

The Obama campaign just announced that Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton, is endorsing Barack Obama.

Here’s part of what Reich wrote (where else?) on his blog:

I believe that Barack Obama should be elected President of the United States.


Although Hillary Clinton has offered solid and sensible policy proposals, Obama’s strike me as even more so. His plans for reforming Social Security and health care have a better chance of succeeding. His approaches to the housing crisis and the failures of our financial markets are sounder than hers. His ideas for improving our public schools and confronting the problems of poverty and inequality are more coherent and compelling. He has put forward the more enlightened foreign policy and the more thoughtful plan for controlling global warming.
