Thank You, Hillary Clinton
Hillary knocked it out of the park tonight. She had a thankless task - bringing her supporters over to Obama's side without demeaning them or her own candidacy. She managed to pull it off beautifully, with some vicious shots at McCain in the process.
This was the best speech by Senator Clinton I've ever seen.
There will be lots of analysis of this tomorrow - matter of fact, some of it is already up on the web. The New York Times interviews one Hillary delegate who was asked whether she would support Obama.
Her response: “Absolutely–she just told us to, didn’t she?”
There were several liveblogs of her speech, but the funniest one was at Defective Yeti. Go read it. Tell him I sent ya.
