Hillary's Concession Speech

I thought Hillary Clinton's concession speech was pretty good, it would have been great if she had done the same speech last Tuesday. It was a strong and believable endorsement of Barack Obama for president. Clinton effectively reminded her supporters of the importance of ending the Republican reign and the importance of the Democratic ideals. She properly and passionately highlighted women's history in the United States and the sexism she faced during the campaign. And she did it without sounding like a victim. One of the most beautiful lines of her speech, which only women will truly understand was.......

"Although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it."

Let's hope her supporters remember that there is another woman that needs their support and attention!

Not sure I was feeling Hillary's latest speech, slthough it did seem like a very laudable attempt to endorse Obama.

I felt that she should have apologized for the actions of her surrogates, for injecting race into the campaign when she was losing badly, and for the actions of her trifling husband.

HER supporters, not Obama's were in need of much ego-stroking and cajoling to not stay home or be vengeful by voting for McCain.

I felt optimistic after her speech, but again, I think she REALLY missed an opportunity to truly unite the Democratic Party behind the preseumptive nominee.

@ BlkSeaGoat

She could have given a speech that would have electrified even her staunch critics...she missed the chance...she used her platform (again) to pat herself on the back while attempting to be gracious to her voters...

If Obama chooses her...he will commit political suicide because those who are against her CAN NOT be won over. Ever.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
