Hillary’s DNC 08 Speech

On Tuesday night, the second night of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, Sen. Hillary Clinton stood up in front of the crowd of Democrats and delivered a speech. It has generally been hailed as a very good speech.

It was a concession speech!

Clinton never used the word  “concede,” but that is what the speech was all about – Hillary giving up the race and supporting Obama as the Democratic Nominee.

Now the Democrats will have to wait and see if Clinton can manage to sway her supporters. So far the response has been mixed, with some some Clinton supporters seeming willing to support Obama and others somehow seeing this as another example of mysogyny in America.

Any thoughts?

    I thought it was a brilliant speech, and she was certainly deserving of the DNC stage. I don’t think she can change her stubborn supporter’s mind, but that politics for you.

    It seemed like a good speech to me, but I’m beginning to think I’m – along with you – in the minority on the topic. It seems that pundits are having a grand old time hacking it apart and complaining about for a myriad of reasons.
