Call me a giant loser, but sitting here watching replays from the Democratic Convention is giving me chills. (By the way, “call me a giant loser” is just intended as an expression. I’ll appreciate no one leaving me comments actually calling me a giant loser, Mom.)
Hillary’s speech was fantastic! She was poised, she was direct, she was eloquent. And how radiant did she look in orange?! Simply glowing!
I can only hope that this speech shuts up those moronic naysayers who claim Hillary supporters won’t vote for Obama. Such a concept has always seemed to be absurd. Clinton and Obama’s proposed policies were nearly identical. If you supported what Hillary stood for, you supported what Obama stood for by default. Unless of course you simply supported women, and even then, I think I could make a pretty strong case that Obama’s got more of what you’re interested than McCain does. The only reason I could even fathom why Clinton supporters might not vote for Obama is out of bitterness and spite for Clinton’s loss – but then, isn’t that the exact stereotype that women are trying to get away from?
So hooray for Hillary for delivering such a critical and well-worded speech! (I suppose that warrants a hooray for her speechwriters, too!) Hooray for Obama! Hooray for a unified Democratic party! Hooray for giving the so-called “Red” states the governance that is best for them no matter how hard they try to spite themselves!
