“No Way, No How, No McCain”

August 26, 2008

Nine weeks from tonight, when the election returns start to come in showing that Barack Obama has been elected President, he and all Democrats will look back on this night and thank Hillary Clinton.  Her speech tonight was gracious, eloquent, funny, hard-hitting, and exactly what Obama and the party needed.  I’ve been critical of Clinton in the past in this space, and I wrote critically about her supporters just the other day.  But tonight she showed herself to be not only a brilliant politician, but also a class act, who has dealt with a painful defeat and turned it into perhaps the defining moment of her career in public service.  She was extremely generous to Obama tonight, and I hope that he will be no less generous to her in his speech on Thursday.
