Read what my medal says: "Courage". Ain't it the truth? Ain't it the truth?

Thank you Senator Clinton.

I thought the speech yesterday was wonderful.

Not because you conceded. But because you insisted we're all in this together.

At times watching that speech I was moved to the point of tears, but I do have small confession- there were a couple of occasions when my mind wandered and I focused on the enthusiastic crowd of your supporters and thought of John McCain of all people.

I don't think he and his Republican party, George Bush's Republican party, have a clue what's coming at them.

There is a tsunami of change sweeping over this country.

It will be a hell of a lot of work and a tough fight to win the presidency. It's for means certain. I'm realistic about that.

But I still hold out hope that together as Democrats Americans we can end this horrible period in our country's history.

Do you remember the sorry everybody photo pages where we left our apoligies to the world at the results of the 2004 elections?

We -Hillary Clinton and all of her loyal supporters and everybody else who wants to undo the Bush presidency - have a chance to make it up to the world.

Thank you for that Hillary.

Really, I was deeply divided just before my primary, as our entire nation has been n the election in general. So many Democrats have been teetering between Obama and Clinton. I did not find them to be terribly different in regards to policy. While one had certain strengths, the other had other strengths, but both are excellent candidates, as far as mainstream agendae (itaw?- my new textspeak for is that a word? ) are concerned, which we seem to be stuck with. Still, a major improvement over BüshC© and McBüsh, either way... and even moreso, a political imperative.

I am so excited about getting to vote for Obama in November. I wonder if anyone feels that way about voting for McCain?

Yes. Either one would be a breath of fresh year after the Bush administration.


True, but I doubt people were excited to vote for Bush. Republicans run their campaigns by convincing their voters that voting against the democrat is a moral imperative. That's what gets 'em to the polls.

She looked like there was a terrorist standing just off camera, holding a dull sword and waiting to decapitate her if she didn't read the speech exactly as it was written.

I loved it.

Bradda said...

She did what she HAD to do but only after it was the very last gasp for her. She waited too long as a large chunk of her rabid followers are already pushing for McSame. For a speech about uniting, it's weird that she mentioned the word "I" over 60 times. I agree Dean that the "right" has no idea what comin, just like Clinton had no idea. Gobama.

Swinebread said...

It was a good speech, it's a good first step in reminding her supporters that Obama is not the enemy but there is a hell of a lot of work to do.

pissed off patricia said...

I gotta agree with Flounder. The only thing I noticed is that not once when she mentioned Senator Obama did she smile. Each time there was no expression on her face and she looked down. I guess it will take a while for her to get her heart into this new campaign she will be helping with from here on out.

Sure, we have a chance to make it up. What are the odds that we won't trip over our feet, then shoot our feet, both of them, on the way to the voting booth?

It was an excellent speech.

The folks who rabidly hated Senator's Clinton or Obama - I just refuse to take seriously.

Of course, people get quite vehement about the whole Jan versus Marcia thing too.
