Unity. Clinton tells supporters she will strongly support Obama

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.   Ok, the street fight is over. Join hands everyone and sing “Cumbaya.” The Democratic Party will now unify as never before and  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.  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.)
