In His Own Words: Barack Obama Reveals His Choice For President

imageWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – All the world knows that Barack Obama will not be endorsing or voting for a Republican candidate for president, but until now, he has not revealed nor given a clue on which of the two Democratic presidential candidates he would be endorsing: Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

Analysts naturally pick his former Secretary of State who, ironically, was also her top rival for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.  But others are speculating that Obama might choose to endorse Sanders because of his popularity among both Decmorats and Independents.

Well, all speculation has come to an end.

Today — in a email sent directly to Democrats and supporters titled “My Vote For President” — Obama finally revealed his choice of candidate to succeed him in the Oval Office.

The Adobo Chonicles obtained a copy of the email sent by Obama to millions of Americans, and we are printing it here in full:

Sanders, who does not participate in any organized religion, is hoping that by seeking the Pope’s blessing, he will gain the support of American Catholics in this coming Tuesday’s primary in New York.  In New York City alone, it is estimated that there are 2.6 Million practicing Catholics.

Sanders faces one of the more important primary contests in New York against Hillary Clinton, a Methodist.

Will Sanders’ strategy work?

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Both Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders recently sat down with the editorial board of the Daily News to answer questions on a wide range of issues.

Both candidates, who consider New York their home state, were asked if they ever rode the subway and how it is done.

Here are the transcripts from the interviews:

Sanders

Daily News: I know you’ve got to go in a second. When was the last time you rode the subway? Are you gonna campaign in the subway?

Sanders: Actually we rode the subway, Mike, when we were here? About a year ago? But I know how to ride the subways. I’ve been on them once or twice.

Daily News: Do you really? Do you really? How do you ride the subway today?

Sanders: What do you mean, “How do you ride the subway?”

Daily News: How do you get on the subway today?

Sanders: You get a token and you get in.

Daily News: Wrong.

Sanders: You jump over the turnstile.

Daily News: We would like our photographer to be there when you jump over the turnstile.

Clinton

Daily News: Same questions

Clinton: First, the Secret Service makes a sweep of the subway station and train I’m going to be in. Then they escort me to a working elevator. We proceed directly to the station agent gate where the agent has already swung it open. I am then led to the first car of the train which has previously been emptied out of passengers, except for accredited media photographers. And off we go. Easy!
