"... expected to speak Truth to the stakeholders of this country, the VOTERS!"

Hey, explain that sniper fire whopper. The Truth? Hillary-heads wouldn't know it if they tripped over it.

"We will make them accountable!"

First, make the Clintons accountable - to Elizabeth Ward Gracen, Sally Perdue, Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Monica Lewinsky, Juanita Broaddrick and the other victims of BubbaZipper's sexual predations.

Hillary was in charge of getting these, and ALL women who dared get in the way of her political ambition, slimed.

Account for the PR terrorists pardoned by Bubba, to help Hillary carpetbag that NY Senate seat.

Hillary will forever be known as champion of " WE THE PEOPLE ".

She raised voter consciousness of its' power in the has worked!

Speak Truth to Power now means, rightly, means politicians are expected to speak Truth to the stakeholders of this country, the VOTERS!

We will make them accountable!

She did an amazing job with this speech.

It must have been awfully hard for her.

But her supporters...
as angry as the small minority of the Clintons' losers are, they better donate more money to the Bush/McSame effort than they did to Bill and Hillary. That way, they get to lose their money twice!

People who hate this country enough to vote for four more years of Bush/Cheney
just so they can show Obama supporters how mad they are, they deserve to keep on losing.

She made an intelligent, graceful, and moving speech--the best of her campaign. As an Obama supporter I say: welcome aboard.

But No to an Obama-Clinton ticket. That would serve no one well, including Hillary and her co-vice president.

It will take some time, but let us come together, Democrats, independents, and light-seeing Republicans! Let's take back the country that was torn apart--and torn away from us--in 1968.

This was the best speech Hillary has ever given. She mentioned all the right things--thanking her supporters, recognizing her accomplishments, endorsing the Democratic candidate and suggesting it would be a mistake to vote for a Republican.

This was a GIANT first step in healing the party. Now, it will be important for Hillary to embark on a strategy to disavow all the negative things she said about Obama, things the Republicans are already using to attack him. She has a lot of work still to do, but the journey of a single mile begins with one step.

Hillary took that step today, and I'm proud of her. I know it must have been difficult.

Well it was about @#@#%@#% time!! So she finally managed to show some grace...

If she had done that a couple of months earlier I'd hate her a little less.

And to think that I once saw her as a sympathetic candidate...

Fool me once, etc.

Bye, bye BILLARY Clinton. Don't let the door hit you in the rear end as you exit the political stage -- hopefully FOREVER!
