Clinton Night

I'm glad Obama is the nominee; I think the better candidate won with the better campaign. That said, I have a tremendous amount of respect for Clinton, and always have. As I said all along, I'd have been thrilled to support either of them in the general.

Tonight, she was at the top of her form--exactly as I expected. She made it very clear from the start of her speech that she was there to rally support for Obama. She paid tribute to her supporters, to the rationale for her campaign...and then she brought it back to Obama, asking 'were you in it for me, or for [the people I was campaigning to help]?' She was dignified, funny, gracious, and fundamentally decent.

I didn't vote for her, but I'm thrilled to have her on our side.
