Obama holds off on Democratic endorsement

President Obama is continuing to hold off on an endorsement of front-runner Hillary Clinton or any other Democratic presidential candidate.

The current president had praise for all three Democratic candidates during an interview with ABC News and said “it’s important for the process to play itself out” before he gets involved.

“I think Hillary’s doing great,” Obama said of his former secretary of State, while Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders “is capturing a sense among the American people that they want to know the government’s on their side, that it’s not bought and paid for.”

The third Democratic candidate, former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, “has important things to say,” Obama told ABC.

“So we’ll let this process play out” when it comes to an endorsement, Obama said. “I am confident that we’re going to have a good, strong Democratic candidate, and that they’ll be able to win in November.”
