Hillary Clinton Endorses Barack Obama

What a speech. Did you watch Hillary Clinton’s speech today endorsing Barack Obama? Incase you missed it, here it is:


Hillary said today:

I entered this race because I have an old-fashioned conviction that public service is about helping people solve their problems and live their dreams. I’ve had every opportunity and blessing in my own life, and I want the same for all Americans.

And until that day comes, you’ll always find me on the front lines of democracy, fighting for the future.

The way to continue our fight now, to accomplish the goals for which we stand is to take our energy, our passion, our strength, and do all we can to help elect Barack Obama, the next president of the United States.

Today, as I suspend my campaign, I congratulate him on the victory he has won and the extraordinary race he has run. I endorse him and throw my full support behind him.

And I ask all of you to join me in working as hard for Barack Obama as you have for me.

Todd Beeton on MYDD said, “It’s strange, reading and listening to the virtually universal praise of the speech today, it feels almost as though people are finally seeing the Hillary Clinton I’ve been watching all along.” I agree.  The speech was nothing short of awesome and I expected nothing less from Hillary Clinton. 

Hillary was eloquent and forthright and she proved without a doubt that she will fight, and fight hard to get Barack Obama elected in November. As Hilary Rosen said in her wonderful post about Clinton’s speech, “We have a lot of work to do in the next several months to win back the White House. But today was Hillary’s day in the sun.”

And shine Hillary Clinton did:

“So today I’m going to count my blessings and keep on going,” she said. “I will do it with a heart filled with gratitude, with a deep and dividing love for our country, and with nothing but optimism and confidence for the days ahead.”

I’m ever so grateful for the experience of supporting Hillary Clinton’s bid for the nomination and ever so proud of her today. I’m following her lead now in supporting Barack Obama, and will work as all Democrats should towards defeating John McCain in the November general election.

  1. FTW.

    I may have trusted Hillary to run this entire country, but I sure as hell don’t trust her to give me advice on who to vote for going forward.

    What does she know anyway?

  2. With the speech today, the Dems are ready to take on John McCain.

    Amazing speech. I’m really, really impressed. After hearing this, I do believe that she might be a very good VP pick. Really, she could do anything she wants – in terms of her star power, she’s eclipsed even her own husband now. I think that’s important. My respect for her increased after this speech.

    She opened the doors for all females to run for the highest office in the land. And actually, before we all forget, the Democratic Party itself – for all of its flaws – it is this party who has put forth a woman, an African American, and in Richardson, a Latino. For those who have considered jumping ship for McCain and the Republican Party, consider this: they put forth a band of candidates who were all male, white, and old. They would never have made such a risk.

    “Hilary is up on stage right now saying what pelosi and the democratic party are telling her what to do.”

    Only a fool would think that Hillary Clinton would say what someone else told her to say. I’m sorry for you that you don’t get that. She stayed in the race as long as she did, because she didn’t listen to what others said. But she said today, she has said along she would support the nominee if she did not win the nomination. She fought a hard race and so did he. Politics is ugly — she knows that. She’s a better person than all of us, for having the grace to stand and endorse Barack Obama today. Wake up.

    Paul V. You think several millions will vote for McCain, what a load of crap you really need to get your head out of the sand.

    4 years of McCain will put this countrty beyond repair and how many more thousands of the soldiers do you want killed with his endless war and as the man himself said he is clueless about the economy. As far as you saying the country is not ready for a Black President you just cannot hide your Racism canb you. The Country is just as ready for a Black President just as much as it is ready fro a woman president. The treatment of Hillary has been disgusting “by the media”, her career is not ruined-far from it, she is still a big player for her party and i hope she is offered the VP spot. I think they both could help put this country back together after 8 disastrous years and will be 12 years of killing this country if McBush is elected. One last thing just think if McCain is elected look at what will happen to the supreme court, Roe vs Wade will be gone and so will alot of womens rights. Just think about that before you vote for Grandpa.
