Hillary Still Gaining Ohio Endorsements

According to the cable news shows and some polls today, Obama has the Democratic nomination all but sewn up.

We recommend a vote for Hillary Clinton in the March 4 presidential primary.

She also received the endorsement today of a dozen Cleveland officals and community leaders , adding to more than 20 who have previously endorsed her.
