Former Fulton Juvenile Court Judge Glenda Hatchett Endorses Obama

You've probably seen her on t.v. as she doles out justice on her half hour program.

If you appeared in her courtroom while she was a Fulton County Juvenile Court Judge, you likely saw her make issue rulings in person.

Today, as she's done so many times on television or in her courtroom, Judge Glenda Hatchett has handed down a ruling...

...On the 2008 presidential campaign.

Judge Hatchett has endorsed Barack Obama for President.

The Obama campaign announced Hatchett's endorsement as part of a larger list of supporters designed to highlight Barack Obama's support among national women leaders including former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

"Change has never been easy, it’s always been hard-fought with bumps and bruises along the way, but these women leaders have had the tenacity to charge on. I am honored to have the support of such remarkable women who have broken down barriers and paved the way for change for my daughters and generations of women. In accepting their support I also accept the great responsibility to carry the torch by advancing women’s rights and bringing the change women need," Senator Barack Obama said in a statement released this afternoon. "For every Sally Ride, Tory Burch, or Billie Jean King, there are hundreds of young women out there whose dreams seem a little more possible. As president, I will work to safeguard and support those dreams for my daughters and future generations of Americans through policies that further opportunity for all."
