Considering both of their personal backgrounds, it comes as no surprise.

Newsom is smoking jaja juice ... if you think the Clinton's are going to put their political credibility on the line for a San Francisco mayor that runs the most laughed-at town on the planet ... well, it's just plain halucenigenic. Next on the chopping block: Nancy Pelosi ... hey and I consider myself an ex-hippie lefty with conservative tendencies.

I am not thrilled about Newson, but I'd rather see him than Brown as governor.... remember Brown's lawsuit against Pleasanton?

I will not forget that Mr. Newsom betrayed a friend and had an affair with a friend's wife. He betrayed a close friend and that says something about this Sad Sack. There's alot that I appreciate about him but not this nasty business of destroying a family. Too much for me to ever trust him again. Gavin Newsom you will never get my vote.

If he wants to run for Govener he will have to become much more conservative. San Francisco voters do not represent the interests of state voters.

Yeh, that sounds about right that Clinton would endorse Newsom, they both support the "if it feels good, do it" philosophy.

Neither of these sleeze-bags get my support.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
