Barbara Lee has not endorsed Clinton or Sanders, despite Black Caucus pick

Rep. Barbara Lee
Rep. Barbara Lee, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said she has not offered support for any Democratic presidential candidate, despite the announcement Thursday that its Political Action Committee is supporting Hillary Clinton.

During an interview Thursday with Democracy Now!, Lee said there is a distinction between members of the Congressional Black Caucus and its PAC, which made the endorsement for Clinton over the more progressive Bernie Sanders.


"There's a clear firewall. there's a clear distinction," said Lee, who is not a member of the PAC, she said, and had no input in its selection.

"I have not endorsed in the campaign. I think what is important is that the issues be addressed. I think it's important both candidates answer these questions in a forthright manner," said Lee.

Getting out the vote and blocking a Republican from becoming president is her highest priority, she added.

Before the 2008 presidential primaries, Lee offered an early endorsement of Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton.


  1. By MW:

    Hillary is the perfect representative of: one, the leadership of the Demagogue Party of the last several decades; and two, modern style "liberalism."

    However those two groups and their insane policies are largely responsible for the fact that in recent decades the streets in so many neighborhoods have become unsafe to walk and in many cities no one in his or her right mind is willing to become a schoolteacher.

    More specifically, most prominent "liberals" and the overwhelming majority of the highest ranking members of the Demagogue Party have one or both of the following characteristics:

    One, extreme sleaziness, phoniness, and being scam artists, parasites, and blood sucking leeches, and no matter how much they pretend to be great humanitarians;

    And/or two, being "sophisticated," fancy talking, and "highly educated" extreme mental retards.

    And related to the "wisdom" of those "sophisticated," fancy talking, and "highly educated" extreme mental retards that provide the "thinking" and lies that so much of modern liberalism is based on. the way one guy so well put it is that "The first two thousand names in the Manhattan phonebook could do a better job of running the US than the faculty of Harvard University."

    And perhaps even Barbara Lee is finally becoming aware that continuing to have parasites and blood sucking leeches such as and similar to Hillary running the country, and no matter how much Hillary and her co-conspirators pretend they are great liberals and wonderful humanitarians, would be long term suicide for virtually everybody in the entire US.
