Farewell, Senator Clinton

Clinton officially suspends campaigns, vows to help get Senator Obama elected.
"The way, the way to continue our fight now, to accomplish the goals for which we stand is to take our energy, our passions, our strengths and do all we can to help elect Barack Obama, the next president of the United States," she said of her former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination.

I've been hard on Senator Clinton, to say the least - and the fact is, I stand by what I've said. She went a very dark route in this campaign, and I feel it is a stain on her character. That said... I had an opportunity to catch this speech on TV, and it was very powerful and moving. And from what I saw, very sincere. So thank you, Hillary, for your dedication and work over the many, many years - this isn't the end for you, merely the beginning of a new role, I'm sure. I hope we see more of the woman I saw in the speech today, and less of what we saw on the campaign trail as we move forward.

This nomination has been very polarizing to the party, it's been very aggressive from both sides, neither wanting to give in the least, and understandably so. There have been hurt feelings, and anger from many involved. Now however, we have an important goal ahead, we must work together, we must hold together, to stop the downward spiral our country has been forced into.

Let us progress together.
