Hoyer praises — but doesn’t endorse — Bradley for V.P.

PARAMUS – House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) seems to like the idea of former U.S. Sen. Bill Bradley (D-Montclair) as Barack Obama's running mate – in a very non-committal sort of way.

"I think Bill Bradley was an outstanding member of the U.S. Senate, I think he's a very decent, value-centered individual. Obviously a very distinguished scholar in his own right," said Hoyer during a campaign appearance for 5th district congressional candidate Dennis Shulman. "There's no doubt he could be president and many supported him fro president when he ran, so I think that would be a choice the American public would certainly respond favorably to."

Still, Hoyer emphasized that he's not recommending anyone to presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

"I'm going to be for Senator Obama's choice," he said Hoyer praises — but doesn’t endorse — Bradley for V.P.
