It's not unlike having a family dispute but once there is an outside threat to the family those two sides come together stronger than ever to defeat the common enemy (i.e. John McCain). Hillary pleaded with her supporters NOT to vote for McCain because doing so would set their causes back another 4-8 years. Especially women's rights and the Supreme Court. I know that Barack Obama is a strong fighter for woman's rights and that women can rest assured that Obama will do everything in his power to protect and extend those rights.
And what really convinced me was her resounding call of, "Yes we can!!" I thought she had a great balance of recognizing her supporters and thanking them for their hard work and stating that she will continue to fight for them while supporting the Obama campaign.
I was also very impressed with the audience who were vastly energized for uniting behind Barack but of course the boo birds were represented. There were times when boos and jeers were heard after she endorsed Obama but thankfully they were few. It got me thinking though that if they love her so much than why would they boo her now that she's gracefully conceded? In booing they are just booing their beloved candidate!!
Hillary spoke to the hard feelings though and addressed it with great maturity and poise. She encouraged her supporters not to think "if only" or "what if" because every moment we think looking back keeps us from moving forward. Live is too short and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been. What must work together for what still can be.
So all in all it was a great speech and a resounding endorsement. It couldn't have been a better speech and I thank Hillary for taking the high road. I am so happy that we are starting to unite and focus on the real problem--John McCain.
Now it's on-ward to getting Obama into the White House!!! I look forward to working side by side with Hillary supporters to take back the White House for the American people. We are living in a great time in American history and it is a thrill to be apart of it. So again, thank-you Hillary for this great speech of unity. She hit the ball out of the stadium.
