President Obama Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

The president endorsed Clinton in an online video, saying "I'm with her."

"I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,” Obama says in the three-minute, 15-second video. “She’s got the courage, the compassion and the heart to get the job done.”

Obama says in the video he "can't wait" to join Clinton on the campaign trail, and he will make his debut alongside Clinton next Wednesday in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today the endorsement video was recorded Tuesday, a day after The Associated Press declared Clinton the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Clinton responded with an online message of her own, thanking Obama for the endorsement through a tweet using the president's signature campaign line "Fired up, ready to go!"
