Shocker: Castro Endorses Clinton-Obama

From his undying fans at Reuters:


Castro’s tip: Clinton-Obama the winning ticket

By Anthony Boadle

HAVANA (Reuters) – Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro is tipping Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to team up and win the U.S. presidential election.

Clinton leads Obama in the race to be the Democratic nominee for the November 2008 election, and Castro said they would make a winning combination.

The word today is that an apparently unbeatable ticket could be Hillary for president and Obama as her running mate,” he wrote in an editorial column on U.S. presidents published on Tuesday by Cuba’s Communist Party newspaper, Granma…

Castro’s only reference to U.S. President George W. Bush in his latest essay was to say that he “needed fraud” to win Florida’s electoral college votes and the presidency in the fiercely contested election in 2000.

Castro said former President Bill Clinton was “really kind” when he bumped into him and the two men shook hands at a U.N. summit meeting in 2000. He also praised Clinton for sending elite police to “rescue” shipwrecked Cuban boy Elian Gonzalez from the home of his Miami relatives in 2000 to end an international custody battle…

He said his favorite U.S. president since 1959 was Jimmy Carter, another Democrat, because he was not an “accomplice” to efforts to violently overthrow the Cuban government…

I have to admit to being mildly surprised by his endorsement of Hillary.

I thought Castro was a little more conservative than that.

Castro’s only reference to U.S. President George W. Bush in his latest essay was to say that he “needed fraud” …

Gee, that’s what Hillary says, too.

Of course they hold so many similar viewpoints, it’s no wonder she is his choice for el Presidente.

He said his favorite U.S. president since 1959 was Jimmy Carter…

Of course that is no surprise at all.
