Taylor Backs Clinton Campaign

Screen legend DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR has announced she is donating $2,300 (GBP1,180) to New York Senator HILLARY CLINTON's campaign to become the Democrat candidate for next year's (08) US presidential election. The actress confesses she admires Clinton's vast experience and outspoken nature, and is backing her over political rival Senator BARACK OBAMA. In a statement, Taylor says, "I have contributed to Senator Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign because she has a mind of her own and a very strong one at that. "I like the way she thinks. She is very savvy and a smart leader with years of experience in government, diplomacy and politics." Taylor's donation is the legal limit candidates can receive from any one source. Last year (NOV06), ROBERT DE NIRO, TONY BENNETT and PAUL NEWMAN also expressed support for Clinton when they publicly backed her for Senate re-election.
