Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack will endorse Hillary for president on Monday.

Most of the remaining Democratic presidential contenders sought Vilsack's support after he withdrew from the campaign. This is a major coup for the Clinton campaign and will obviously improve Hillary's chances of doing well in the Iowa caucuses. Vilsack's endorsement might even help Hillary with those "unfair" objections, raised by left wing activists over Hillary's vote to authorize military action against Iraq. Vilsack was among the most antiwar Democratic presidential wannabees. He called for Congress to cut off funding for the war and asked Iowa lawmakers to pass a resolution opposing President Bush's decision to deploy more U.S. troops in Iraq.
