Hillary's Speech

“This is a fight for the future, and it’s a fight we must win together.”

“No way. Now how. No McCain.”

I know how many folks put heart and soul into Hillary’s campaign, and what a day it could have been to have a women of such distinction be our president, and I would have voted for her without question. Hillary would have taken this hurting land and returned us to health. She would have restored our international reputation and gotten us back on course with providing a safe society for every citizen.

The transition to Obama for Hillary has been made.

I know her constituency will rightly answer her question, “Were you in this campaign just for me, or for the people?”

Isn’t that what Democrats are all about?

Not the favored few, but all the people, especially those who put their backs into it – the working poor, the working middle class right on the cusp of poverty should a corporate board room decide to sell out, outsource, or just grab a little more for themselves.

How is it that corporate minions are rewarded for cutting pensions, reducing benefits, and thousands of layoffs?

How sick and sad had the American business community become.
How distorted and dysfunctional with the lies created by Reagan and perpetrated by subsequent Repub administrations and the neo-con dreamers.

Yes, it’s time for America to regain its balance.

“We don’t need four more years of the last eight years of failed policies.”

“Which is why Bush and McCain will be together in the Twin Cities next week, because it’s hard to tell them apart.”

“Before we can keep going, we’ve got to get going, by electing Barack Obama our next President.”

Hats off to Hillary for a rip-roaring speech that told the truth and brought the Democratic Party together.
