Clinton suspends her historic presidential bid

WASHINGTON - Hillary Rodham Clinton ended her historic campaign for the presidency on Saturday and told supporters to unite behind rival Barack Obama, closing out a race that was as grueling as it was groundbreaking.

The former first lady, who as recently as Tuesday declared herself the strongest candidate, gave Obama an unqualified endorsement and pivoted from her role as determined foe to absolute ally.

"The way to continue our fight now to accomplish the goals for which we stand is to take our energy, our passion, our energy and do all we can to help elect Barack Obama, the next president of the United States," she said in a speech before cheering supporters packed into the ornate National Building Museum, not far from the White House she longed to reign in.

"Today as I suspend my campaign, I congratulate him on the victory he has won and the extraordinary campaign he has won. I endorse him and throw my full support behind him and I ask of you to join me in working as hard for Barack Obama as you have for me," the New York senator said.

With that, Clinton placed herself solidly behind her Senate colleague from Illinois, a political sensation and the first black to secure a presidential nomination.

For Clinton and her supporters, it was a poignant moment, the end of an extraordinary run that began with an air of inevitability and certain victory. About 18 million people voted for her; it was the closest a woman has come to capturing a nomination.

Joining her on stage were her husband, the former president, and their daughter, Chelsea, before she took their leave as she addressed the crowd.

Obama secured the 2,118 delegates needed to clinch the nomination Tuesday after primaries in South Dakota and Montana. He planned to spend the weekend at home in Chicago.

Clinton supporters began lining up at dawn to attend the farewell address. A smattering of Obama backers showed up as well, saying they did so as a gesture of party unity.

She is only following the party line and stepping back and letting the East coast radical bleeding heart liberals have their boy now to run for it, and when he falls face down in it, she can laugh and say I told you so, she will run for president in 2012 and win, what a group of crooks the DNC is and the whole Democrat party, they eat their own!

Some unity and change this Democrat primary brought on! :star:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Well noone said Hillary has to be happy about losing.

I would hazard a guess that she has maturity enough to understand that even if she didn't secure the nomination - that the sorts of reform policies she wants are more likely to be implemented under Barack than McCain.

You believe that and you believe her supporters will vote for Ovomit, clue in they are going to vote for McCain. Get ready for the Straight Talk Express coming to your neighborhood soon! :innocent:

Sounds like a gracious speech.

I agree. Quite encouraging to see her supporters embracing her message of party unity and cheering on her pledge to fully support and campaign her heart out for Obama. Very encouraging indeed. Thank you, Sen. Clinton.
