Senator and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is about to get former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack’s endorsement.
This is pretty big news and strengthens Clinton’s position in Iowa significantly. Vilsack — while a second tier presidential contender — is nonetheless an important part of a credible heartland strategy.
A timely endorsement like this gets Vilsack on the VP consideration list — even though I think a more interesting pairing for Clinton would be Chuck Hagel.
