I have just been reading a little on the Clinton’s goodbye speech at a rally today in Washington. Sounds like she made a nice speech. Here is a link to the Slate Blog on the speech. It ends with:
Clinton left her supporters with the message that her candidacy and Obama’s are both historic—but that this moment is his. “I will work my heart out to make sure that Senator Obama is our next President and I hope and pray that all of you will join me in that effort,” she said. The cheers drowned out the boos.
I am happy to see Obama with the candidacy and Clinton now supporting him, but I have some concerns. I am worried about the underlying racism that still exists in this country. I want to believe that it is possible for a black man with an Islamic name to beat a white protestant “war hero”, but I have concerns.
