The endorsement Hillary Clinton has been waiting for

She already loves the Cuban-style healthcare system. And now she has picked up a key endorsement:

HAVANA (Reuters) - Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro is tipping Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to team up and win the U.S. presidential election.

"The word today is that an apparently unbeatable ticket could be Hillary for president and Obama as her running mate," he wrote in an editorial column on U.S. presidents published on Tuesday by Cuba's Communist Party newspaper, Granma.

B. Hussein Obama has not commented on Castro's suggestion that he be the Vice Presidential nominee.

But here's a shocker. Castro's favorite US President is:

He (Castro) said his favorite U.S. president since 1959 was Jimmy Carter, another Democrat, because he was not an "accomplice" to efforts to violently overthrow the Cuban government.
