“Were you in it just for me?” Big words from Hillary that might loom large.
Cautiously optimistic, but I have to give it to Hillary Clinton for unifying the party–at least for last night–with a great speech, but the question still remains if her supporters will vote for Barack.
There’s too much of this that seems to be about the Clintons. What’s up with that?
Going in, I wondered if she was going to give any words of tribute regarding the recent passing of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and she did. Stephanie did so much for her campaign and Hillary mentioning her friend was personal.
She’s still done to me because of the Bobby Kennedy assassination references. I can’t look past what some trivialize as dirty politics.
I don’t know why she felt it was necessary to call John McCain a friend because that was not good for Barack. In different of that, Hillary seemed to say all the right things Barack needed to hear and maybe is the surrogate Barack needs as November approaches to get this thing done.
There were many key words in the speech below that should help influence her followers to support Barack in November.
This is a fickle country but if the election was right now, maybe Barack wins, but John McCain still has an at bat left next week.
I wonder if Barack wrote her words because that seemed like a full endorsement of Barack Obama–which was surprising.
When Hillary spoke, I got a sense her supporters were upset she didn’t win the nomination. There seemed to be a lot of her supporters who wanted to see a woman win a presidential election during their lifetime. I understand why they have reason to be upset and there will undoubtedly be a backlash against Barack. If Barack wins and doesn’t have a good four years, the nomination is hers simply based on her speech. Unless Joe Biden hits a homer as well, there will be those who will always wonder why Hillary Clinton isn’t on this ticket.
This is what Barack is going to face. It could doom him in November.
What type of impact will Joe Biden have when he speaks tonight?
Slick Willie is speaking tonight as well. He could possibly lock it up for Barack. Did you see him mouth “I love you. I love you now and forever” while Hillary spoke?
