The HRC Campaign has just announced the endorsements of 22 Native American Leaders from the great state of South Dakota. These endorsements could potentially help HRC in the Native American sections of the state and the bring out the vote.
Hillary does have a comprehensive Native American Agenda for South Dakota, something the great "CHANGE" campaign is lacking. Her plan includes an outreach for unemployement to healthcare to those of the Native American Community.
Here is the link for the full endorsement: http://www.hillaryclinton.com/news/relea
Bring on the comments of "Who Cares?" and "Big Deal?" Just think about what your commenting on...

South Dakota's largest newspaper, the Argus Leader, went on record today in support of Hillary Rodham Clinton for President.
Editorial: Clinton is top candidate for Dems
Excerpts from the endorsement:
(Clinton's) resilience and determination never should be questioned. She has met or overcome every challenge or roadblock in her way, and there have been many. Her determination to carry the nomination process through to its real conclusion has perhaps earned her a grudging respect from those who would never support her.
Obama is justifiably credited as a powerful speaker, but Clinton holds her own easily. As those who have attended her South Dakota rallies can attest, she is quick on her feet and energetic. She frames her ideas clearly in speeches and answers questions with genuine directness.
Clinton is the strongest Democratic candidate for South Dakota.
Her mastery of complex policy detail is broad and deep, and her experience as a senator and former first lady matches that.
Clinton's energy policy is forward thinking and wise. She advocates a broad federal research initiative to help solve our looming oil crisis. It's a plan that would join university researchers, private industry and individual inventors behind a common goal...Is ethanol part of the answer? Clinton believes it is but not necessarily corn ethanol...That is not precisely the answer South Dakota wants to hear. Corn-based ethanol has been a boon for farmers here. But the simple fact is that she probably is correct...
Clinton has demonstrated a real commitment to Native American issues and will have visited several South Dakota reservations before the race is over. Clinton is precisely correct when she says that people outside the region have a poor understanding of the troubling trends on our reservations...
Her truly universal health care plan would be welcomed by thousands of South Dakotans. Even on reservations, where health care is nominally universal already, such a plan would be welcome. The federal government would never be allowed to subject everyday Americans to the kind of care Native Americans living on reservations routinely receive.
The endorsement is especially gratifying to Clinton supporters given the extreme overreaction to a reference she made to RFK in the Argus Leader interview -- an incident which was shamefully exploited by Barack Obama's campaign.
And, the Argus Leader endorsement is gratifying in light of furious efforts by party elites to end the nomination process before the convention, even though neither candidate will have enough pledged delegates by then.
Thank you, Argus Leader, for confirming what 18 million people already know: Hillary Clinton is the best Democrat to be President!

Of course, we know why Camp Obama and the media keep trying to call an end for the campaign of the Democratic nomination. Because as Hillary continues to campaign, she is winning the support of not just the Democrats, but more independents and Repbublicans, that shows her the best chance to win in the General Election.

Memo to Hillary Clinton: Please don't quit
By LEWIS W. DIUGUID
The Kansas City Star
Which also means, as long as she keeps receiving more support and more votes, Hillary can win the nomination. And of course, that is possible, because the other candidate is not winning or securing the votes he needed to win. That wasn't on Camp Obama's wishlist. So, they have resorted to every other means possible to push for that outcome. Forgetting apparently, Hillary is not a quitter.

On the heels of the mason dixon poll showing Obama up 17 points in Montana, one might not consider that she has any chance in the upcoming primaries. However, since the campaign of the ESTEEMED senator from Illinois is turing to GE mode a bit prematurely, Senator Clinton may have an opening in the next couple primaries. A few thoughts:
Puerto Rico: On paper this is a Clinton rout but Obama's considerable cash advantage may allow him to somewhat negate a possible Clinton landslide in the delegate count but not enough to allay a victory in the popular vote, the metric which her campaign is now focused on.
Montana: Obama will win this independent minded state fairly easily but not by a large enough margin to merit a significant delegate split. This is one state, though, where the Clinton name may still be strong enough (in certain areas) to swing a considerable number of votes, though not on the scale of Arkansas or West Virginia.
South Dakota: This is the one state that Clinton could potentially pull a come from behind victory in. Though this is one of the few primaries that Bill Clinton lost in 92
(to Bob Kerrey no less), the large number of undecideds that has manifested itself in the few polls taken in this state suggests that Clinton has the potential to score a popular vote victory, albeit a narrow one in this state. If she could pull this off, it would need to be considered a remarkable feat, considering that Daschle, JOhnson, and Herseth-Sandlin are backing Obama.
that is just my two cents worth but please share your opinions and comments regarding this analysis below. BTW, if you feel that I am an idiot, f****r, retard, or troll, there is no need to post your sentiments in the comments section because that would violate the standards of this blog. Thanks.

But first a stop over in South Dakota before landing in Kentucky.
As results of Hillary's huge win in West Virginia last night, South Dakotan's were reaffirming their support for Hillary as President.
Just the day prior, 41 former State Legislators and Constitutional Officers endorsed Hillary Clinton for President.
