Breaking: Ricky Martin Swings Election to Hillary Clinton With Late Endorsement

May 29, 2008 5:25 PM ET

The greatest suspense surrounding this year's presidential election is over, as Ricky Martin announced his endorsement of Hillary Clinton today.

In addition to his great talent, Ricky is committed to improving the world."

Bush in 2000.

The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
