Barack Obama Endorses Hillary Clinton

Watch President Obama Officially Endorse Hillary Clinton

It's official! President Barack Obama is on Team Hillary. In a three-minute video released Thursday, Obama congratulated his former secretary of state and campaign rival on becoming the Democratic party's presumptive nominee, saying he doesn't think there's anyone more qualified for the office. In the official endorsement, Obama said Hillary Clinton has the courage, compassion, and heart to get the job, adding, "I say that as somebody who had to debate her more than 20 times."

Watch the video, as Obama goes down memory lane about working with Hillary Clinton. The two will make their first appearance on the campaign trail on June 15 in Wisconsin. That's also the day after the final Democratic primary in Washington DC, after which Bernie Sanders could officially concede to Clinton.
