Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labor endorses Obama

Robert Reich, Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labor in his first administration, announced on his endorsement of Barack Obama today. Of course he gives the usual thoughts on how Obama has energized people and brought more people into politics, but what really gives his endorsement weight is the following:

Although Hillary Clinton has offered solid and sensible policy proposals, Obama’s strike me as even more so. His plans for reforming Social Security and health care have a better chance of succeeding. His approaches to the housing crisis and the failures of our financial markets are sounder than hers. His ideas for improving our public schools and confronting the problems of poverty and inequality are more coherent and compelling. He has put forward the more enlightened foreign policy and the more thoughtful plan for controlling global warming.

Clinton’s former SOL saying Obama’s plan for social security, health care, and the housing crisis are superior is quite the statement.
