Former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, who died in 2006, has so far held off on endorsing a presidential candidate from the Afterlife.
But that hasn't stopped Hillary Clinton's campaign from suggesting that Richards would be supporting her in her fight for the presidency.
With permission from Richards' daughter Ellen, the Clinton camp has produced a two-minute Internet video that strongly implies that Richards would be campaigning for Clinton if she were alive.
Not so fast, say Ann Richards' sons:
But sons Dan and Clark Richards say nobody can know whom their mother would have supported in the race between Clinton and Barack Obama.
"As her children, we never presumed to know her mind when alive, and we are not prepared to make a claim as to who she would endorse or what she would do if she were still with us," they wrote in an e-mail last week.
