[Ed. – They do elect some unusual public officials, over there in Delaware.]
Sen. Tom Carper (D) campaigned for Hillary Clinton at a rally in Delaware on Monday – but she probably wished he hadn’t. In his introduction of her in front of a confused crowd, Carper praised Clinton’s eight years as governor.
“Hillary Clinton was right there in the middle of it all. I saw her. I saw her as a governor, as chairman of the National Governor’s Association, she was terrific,” Carper said.
That’s nice – except Clinton never served as a governor. She was a New York senator for eight years, before she assumed the role of President Obama’s secretary of state.
Yet, Carper was insistent.
“For eight years that we served together in the House, she did her job. She did her job. She was amazing. She was amazing,” Carper said. “She always surrounded herself by the best people you could find. God, she was a terrific colleague.”
