A day after Barack Obama announced that Oprah Winfrey would campaign for him in some early primary states, Hillary Clinton has countered with her own not-so-surprising celebrity endorsement.
Singer/actress Barbra Streisand, who has a history of supporting the Clintons, has announced her support for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to a press release by the campaign.
“Madame President of the United States…itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an extraordinary thought. We truly are in a momentous time, where a womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s potential has no limitations,” Streisand said in the release. “Hillary Clinton has already proven to a generation of women that there are no limits for success. She is driven by her passion for public service and her belief in the enormous potential of our country. Smart, capable and strong in her convictions, Hillary has transcended the dictates of what is thought to be possible for our time. ”
A Hillary Clinton presidency, Streisand added, would: “shatter through that glass ceiling for all women.”
Clinton, in the release, said she was honored to have Streisand’s support.
“Barbra has used her immense talent to be an advocate for truth, justice, and fairness and I deeply appreciate her confidence in my candidacy as we work together to change the direction of our nation.”
