President Barack Obama Will most likely officially Endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton Sooner Rather than Later

http://www.electoral-vote.com/evp2016/Pres/Maps/Feb11.html#item-5
Customarily, sitting presidents avoid making an endorsement in primary season, so as to avoid unduly influencing the process. Not always, though—Bill Clinton endorsed Al Gore, and LBJ endorsed Hubert H. Humphrey, among others.

So, will Barack Obama sit the primaries out or not? It appears that the answer is "no." To a large extent, his preference is already known: He feels a sense of loyalty to his former secretary of state, and he also hasn't forgotten that Bernie Sanders tried to recruit a more progressive challenger in 2012. Further, he's dropped increasingly less subtle hints as to his favored successor in interviews and in speeches. On Wednesday, he delivered an address that argued for the importance of flexibility and compromise over rigid adherence to ideology, and essentially invoked Hillary's debate line: "Progressives are people who make progress."

On March 15, Obama will vote in the primaries in his home state of Illinois. At that point, he will almost certainly have to let the Hillary out of the bag. The only question, then, is if he will lay his cards on the table sooner, perhaps in hopes of influencing the outcome on Super Tuesday. (Z)

1. Bravo to the continuation of President Obama's Agenda forever into the future.

as someone who wants Presidents Obama agenda/legacy to last forever, as befitting the greatest President of all time tied with Lincoln, I 100% support anything and everything President Obama supports, and he has already let it be known he is going to vote for and support Hillary.
No other candidate will continue his legacy. Thank you President Obama for being my President in our time of need. The revolution was won in 2008, it's ours to hold, by continuing it forever and seeing it secured with every T crossed and I dotted.

3. Like Reagan needed Bush41 to swing the court for 40 years, President Obama needs 3rd term

continuation for the next forever to flip the court

there is no other issue of any importance compared to flipping the court

And Hillary gave us Ruth Bader Ginburg and Stephen Breyer, Obama gave us the greatest current justice,
Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagen

and the Republicans wanted Robert Bork, and gave us Scalia, Thomas, and the corporations favorite friend,
Samuel Alito.

The choice is 180 degrees.

I pick Hillary to shift the court and to continue the agenda of President Obama forever
Every single issue of importance to me depends on the court flipping.

Voting Rights
Gay Marriage
Woman's right to privacy
reinterpreting the 2nd

all those are the issues 'd'jour important to me, and President Obama and need another 4 years to solidify forever (or at least 50 years, like Reagan needed Bush41 to do such.)

Feel free to disagree. This is my opinion.

9. Ok

While I voted for Obama the 1st time hoping for progressive reform. I voted for him the 2nd time because he wasn't Romney. I'm done with that. I want a real progressive I'm the white house. Not a Regan democrat. I'm not rich, Hillary offers nothing for me.

11. Bill Clinton endorsed Gore--LBJ endorsed Humphrey . . . and they both LOST

 

So, go for it Obama.
