I am a delegate to the Democratic National Convention pledged to Hillary Rodham Clinton. I have endorsed her and I remain strongly committed to her candidacy for president.

Before you ask me, let me say it: If Hillary Clinton falls short and is not the Democratic Party’s nominee for president (and I very much hope she is the nominee), I would like her on the ticket.

During the course of a long public career and tough campaigns for Congress and the White House, Senator Clinton has demonstrated the leadership, grasp of issues, compassion, and toughness to serve as the nation’s commander in chief. Those are essential qualifications for president — and also, therefore, for vice president.
