That's one of the funniest lists I've ever seen. Oooooh.... Obama supporters be afraid... both Lionell Spruill AND HIS LEGISLATIVE ASSISTANT are on the gang of 100.

Don't forget about some very accomplished members of student governments from around the state.


Student Government positions is your claim to fame in endorsing a candidate for President?

From A to A? Great range.

First off, congrats to the Hillary campaign for achieving all that it has. :-)

Secondly, to the people on the list, good work! Without you guys, I'm pretty sure the Hillary campaign would undoubtedly be struggling. It's amazing how much work goes into a campaign, and you guys make it work. So, once again, Congrats!! I'm sure your hard work will inevitably pay off. :)

Typical. The immediate assumption that this is a comprehensive and complete list of endorsements for Sen. Clinton. This is a list of individuals responsible for grassroots activities. Virginia is looking more and more like a key player, not only in the primary stages, but in the general election. A large voting bloc that could potentially influence results are college students, either voting by absentee or re-registering for Virginia. That's probably the reason so many student government members are part of Sen. Clinton's steering committee.

If this fevered and uninformed outburst is a glimpse into the disillusioned and clueless mind of an archetypal Obama supporter, I'd rather vote for Huckabee.
