Billy Mills endorses Obama

The race continuesWhile there's no firm overall consensus on who would be the best winner for Indian country, Olympic gold medalist Billy Mills believes Obama is the best candidate to make it to the finish line this fall.

"I was inspired," Mills said in a press conference call May 23 announcing his endorsement. "I've been inspired by three men--Kennedy ... Ronald Reagan ... and Barack Obama. He has a great vision for change--change we can all believe in."

Mills, a member of the Lakota Sioux Tribe, was born and raised on South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. He said he's been a lifelong Republican but will vote for Obama, if he eventually becomes the Democratic nominee, over McCain this fall.
