Break Out the Olive Branches and Let's Move On
Love Hillary...Hate Hillary. Was she sincere? Who cares? What I witnessed during last night's speech at the DNC was a concerted effort to bring the Democratic Party together for the good of the nation. I also witnessed the comments of some right-wingers who will go to great lengths to discredit her sincerity in a quest to win the support of those Hillary backers who are bitter because she didn't win the primary.
Well, I say if 30% of Hillary supporters take their votes to the other side, then I question their loyalty to the party. This is no longer a Clinton vs Obama issue. This is now about coming together for the good of health care, economic viability, affordable housing and education, and a lucrative job market, among other things.
As Hillary Rodham Clinton exited the stage to resounding applause, I couldn't help but admire her graciousness and loyalty to the Democratic Party.
