Hillary Clinton http://ripr.org en Robert Walsh Now Regrets Backing Obama over Clinton in 2008 http://ripr.org/post/robert-walsh-now-regrets-backing-obama-over-clinton-2008 <p></p><p>One of Rhode Island's most prominent Democratic union leaders, Robert A. Walsh Jr., says he now regrets backing Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton in 2008:</p><blockquote><p>"I was an early and vocal supporter of President Obama's first bid for [presidential] office, and in hindsight, I probably should have been an early and vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton. So for all my friends who have chastised me for that, this is an admission that I was wrong on that case -- on the experience issue."</p> Thu, 06 Jun 2013 19:51:10 +0000 Ian Donnis 16475 at http://ripr.org Robert Walsh Now Regrets Backing Obama over Clinton in 2008
