Clinton grabs Vilsack him money

Hillary Clinton received an early endorsement from former presidential candidate Tom Vilsack. The former governor from Iowa announced yesterday with his wife Christie that they would back Clinton in an effort to win the Iowa caucus. In return, Clinton has decided to help Vilsack retire his debt of $400,000 from his run at the office.

"There was no quid pro quo," Daley said. "They have a long history, and if she could be helpful she wants to be helpful."

Nah...there's NO possible connection between this endorsement of Vilsack and Clinton's giving him money...none at all. I'm fine with this arrangement because that's his and her prerogative. But just come out and say it. His wife and Clinton are good be it. I also have a sneaking suspicion that Vilsack is also angling for a VP slot in '08. But thank God it's only '07 so this type of speculation can wait until later!
