I liked the "Twin Cities" line.

I also notice the abscence of any evidence like the "Hillary will sabotage the election because she's waiting for 2012" bullshiters were spewing.

I thought I saw some clips of him yesterday, not sure if it was at the convention or not.

it is very subtle (someone in advertising told me )

she is hitting it out of the ballpark on purpose !!
so Dems will prefer her over Obama

if she really supported Obama, she would reel it in, a bit.

Kieth Oberman is wetting himself in compliments

that sack, Matthews is grudgenly saying it was good, too.

He just said, the speech was Presidential.

I have said it here before, more than once, that Matthews is a gigantic douchebag. The comments he made with respect to Hillary were incredibly sexist all throughout the primary, and I don't understand why so many people like him.

I wish Keith wasn't such a Democratic homer. Oh well, maybe they'll shut up about their inane Clintonian conspiracy theories now. Watching coverage during the day, Matthews and Olbermann kept talking about the Secret Plan B for 2012 and jamming it into any talk about Hillary.

That's the angle, deep, you're a god damned genius!

She's trying to instill buyers remorse!!!!
Of course.

How long before this pops up on DailyKos?

If she reeeeaaaly wanted Obama, she would have surprised the crowd and called Michelle O to the stage and said something to the effect:

"Let it be understood, I support this lady's husband for President and I will be voting for him and supporting them both as they serve in the White House for the next 4 years, are you with us or against us"?

Other than that it was an electrifying speech, but needed to be cut about 10 minutes earlier-she went into Hilary mode towards the end.

The Twin Cities line was classic.
I thought Hillary gave exactly the speech she needed to give. She was sincere, she was clear about exactly where she stands and what needs to be done in the coming months. The most important part of the whole thing was when she asked her supporters, and I'm paraphrasing, if they were only in the election for her, or if they were in it for the future of their children/grandchildren; therefore the future of our nation. Those who thought the speech would be a woe-is-me, half-hearted attempt to make herself look good; while only biding her time until 2012, were very wrong. I knew she wouldn't do something like that. That's not Hillary Clinton. Her ego may have gotten the better of her during the campaign, and I think that's at least part of the reason she lost. However, when push came to shove, I knew that she'd do nothing but fully support the Obama campaign. The Clintons might have a big sense of entitlement, but I think their sense of the common good of the American people is much greater. Hillary Clinton will always be one of my biggest role models for the type of woman I want to be (as Michelle Obama is quickly becoming), and I can honestly say that I have never been as proud of her as I am tonight. She accepted her loss of this nomination with grace and dignity, and she showed why she deserved to make it far as she did. Now, I'm really looking forward to Bill's speech tomorrow night, along with Joe Biden's.

It was fairly predictable for me. I never expected sour grapes.
I think people want to think the worst about her.

Deep, Impressive and Gov. Patrick...not two words I hear a lot around here! He is close with Barack. So much so that they shared an entire speech...word for word. Deval just forgot to mention it wasn't his when he gave it. He also has had ties to questionable subprime lending agencies. He is articulate, but also fairly ineffective. That seems to be the consensus even within the party in MA.
