Not an endorsement, but close; Obama comments hint at support for Clinton

Obama speaks at women's equality monument in WashingtonBy Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama seemed to inch a little closer on Tuesday to endorsing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. “I want young girls and boys to come here, 10, 20, 100 years from now to know that women fought for equality, it was not just given to them,” Obama said of the museum. Obama, perhaps realizing that people would read his remarks as a hint of support for Clinton, tempered them by saying he did not know when a woman would win the White House.
