My Thoughts on Hillary's Speech
Dateline: Aspen. I was able to hear the last ten minutes of Hillary Clinton's speech.
I thought she was great. As one of her supporters, I am going to honor her wishes. She could not have been more clear.
Sen. Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee. The 18 million people who voted for her should now enthusiastically support Sen. Barack Obama.
Even if you thought Hillary was the better candidate for President, she is no longer in the race. That is not going to happen.
What matters now is that we put a Democrat back in the White House. We must all work for that. The alternative , a John McCain presidency, is simply unacceptable.
The race is over. Let's get past it and look forward.
I'm past it. I thank Hillary for her commitment, her resolve and her passion. She inspired millions of us. She will continue to inspire, lead and work to improve our lives -- just not as President.
TalkLeft is proud to now officially declare, "Barack Obama in 2008." He has our full support.
To those suggesting TalkLef now will cover Obama all the time, or become a cheerleader for him, that will not happen,
I will be returning to writing about issues, urging Obama and the Democrats to promise to enact some reforms. I will point out the wrong-headed policies of the Republicans and John McCain.
When the Democratic Convention approaches, I will cover that. I don't intend to cover the general election or follow the Obama campaign until after that. If there's something newsworthy, sure, I may mention it. But in general, he will not be the focus of TalkLeft.
Big Tent Democrat will continue to write about politics and the media, but keep in mind, he's no cheerleader either.
The primary race is over. I really don't have much more to say about it. I do have a lot to say about particular issues and the injustices of the current Administration.
If you are interested in what we cover, by all means, hang around. If you want to continue to dwell on the primaries, or rant against Obama, there will be sites you are more comfortable at.
