Hillary Rodham Clinton has picked up another endorsement.

In a statement released by the Clinton campaign, former Vice President Walter Mondale says "America is ready for change, and Hillary Clinton has the strength and experience to deliver it."

Mondale calls Clinton "uniquely qualified to rebuild America's standing in the world."

Mondale served as vice president under Jimmy Carter, after representing Minnesota in the Senate.

He was the Democratic nominee for president in 1984, but lost to Ronald Reagan in the general election.

Mondale also served as U.S. Ambassador to Japan from 1993 to 1996.

Clinton says she's "deeply honored" to have his support.

The Republican National Committee noted with glee that it was her second endorsement by a failed Democratic presidential nominee.

The other came from George McGovern.
