Hillary Clinton made a marvelous speech last night.


Do you happen to have a link to the text of it? I'd love to read it.

It's here.

But it's even more impressive if you watch her. Here.

Thank you. :) When I get home I definetely will watch her.

Icon love!

Thank you. I can only claim credit for the sweater (my first one!), but fairestcat did a lovely on the icon.

Indeed she did. I love that my local public radio station has been doing special election coverage that includes *full* speeches by the candidates.

It's really superficial, but not only was I impressed with what she said, I thought she looked beautiful - relaxed, rested.

She knew it was over, clearly, but wanted it to be on her terms.

Mostly a very good speech. The one criticism I have of it is that she fails to emphasize how important it is to defeat McCain (which must now be the theme until the general election). The things she said were all good; it's the omission and glossing that main point that she needs to get to, starting ASAP.

Just as Obama's speech was mostly good, but he's still glossing over women's issues (half a statement about glass ceilings isn't enough.)

A fair number of women have been alienated - women he needs. He's started to reach out, but he needs to step that up.
