Rejoice.

Saturday, June 7th, 2008 @ 3:33 pm | Barack Obama, Election crap, Hillary Clinton, Politics

If Hillary works as hard to unite the Democratic Party as she did to get herself elected, we’re going to be sitting pretty in November. Today she takes the first step:

“The way to continue our fight now to accomplish the goals for which we stand is to take our energy, our passion, our strength and do all we can to help elect Barack Obama, the next president of the United States,” she said in a speech before cheering supporters packed into the ornate National Building Museum, not far from the White House she longed to govern from.

“Today as I suspend my campaign, I congratulate him on the victory he has won and the extraordinary race he has run. I endorse him and throw my full support behind him and I ask of you to join me in working as hard for Barack Obama as you have for me,” the New York senator said in her 28-minute address.

All things must end. With grace, endings become beginnings.

    28 minutes, and 25 and a half of them were about Hillary, glorious Hillary. Breaking every barrier in history.

    Can we somehow harness her ego to solve the energy crisis?

    I’m really going to miss her laugh.

    Man, chill that shit or an HRC supporter is going to vote for John “My wife is a cunt!” McCain.

    Hillary isn’t going anywhere anyway. Nobody that hungry for power accrues followers and eschews them. Hopefully she uses them to bolster her Senate career and help get some important shit passed, even if it’s all a part of 2012/2016 plans. As long as she gets them on board by November, she can do whatever she wants afterwards. She will be free and, hopefully, less intimidated by political fears. I’d love to see Hillary get back to her feminist roots, ditch Bill, and spend the rest of her career speaking her damn mind instead of trying to vacuum-seal every syllable. Let yourself go, Hillary!
