Email to supporters from Hillary Clinton
On Saturday, I will extend my congratulations to Senator Obama and my support for his candidacy. This has been a long and hard-fought campaign, but as I have always said, my differences with Senator Obama are small compared to the differences we have with Senator McCain and the Republicans.
I have said throughout the campaign that I would strongly support Senator Obama if he were the Democratic Party’s nominee, and I intend to deliver on that promise.
“I’m not a member of an organized party, I’m a Democrat,” Will Rogers once said.Â Â Ok, the street fight is over. Join hands everyone and sing “Cumbaya.” The Democratic Party will now unify as never before andÂ clobber the Republicans in November.
(BTW, I’m not a Democrat. Now that we’re back in California, I’ll register as Peace & Freedom, the only socialist party in California with ballot status. Obama may well raise expectations so high that he will open the door for the possibility of real change – whether he wants to or not.Â Will he end the wars? Dunno. But I doubt he’ll support torture and the erosion of constitutional rights, and that’ll be major steps in the right direction. And he gets it about global warming.)
