Howard Berman unveils a Golden endorsement

Rep. Howard Berman got the Los Angeles Times endorsement today — that can't hurt, but it's not the one I mean. The campaign is also rolling out a video spot with the backing of Betty White, the seemingly timeless star of TV's "Golden Girls" who has become a hot pop culture property. She appears in the commercial with actress Wendie Malick talking up Berman, who is facing fellow Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman in the June primary. Berman is "the Valley leader who fights for the humane treatment of all animals," says White, who is known as an animal activist. "And he has very nice blue eyes."
