Barack Obama On Hillary Clinton

Today culminated the most historic 16 months in this country's history, where a woman and a Black man were seeking a major party's nomination for the highest office in the land. It was a tough race with over 35 million votes cast. Hillary Clinton may have come up short in the delegate count, but there were no losers. Her victories have empowered all women to strive to shatter the glass ceiling. Barack Obama's historic run and eventual capture of the Democratic Party's nomination should be an inspiration to all Americans, regardless of color... on a national scale, we are beginning to see the realization of Dr. King's Dream.

I received the following e-mail message shortly after Hillary Clinton gave her concession speech and heartily endorsed Barack Obama for President of the United States. There is only one opportunity left; on Tuesday, November 4, 2008, we the people must attack the ballot box with a fervor to ensure that this country is not subjected to another four years of Bush Administration-like politics that would accompany John McCain to the White House. Heed Obama's call to unify the Democratic Party and win back the White House.

plezWorld --

Hillary Clinton announced her support for our campaign today.

Senator Clinton made history over the past 16 months -- not just because she has broken barriers, but because she has inspired millions of Americans with her strength, her courage, and her commitment to causes like universal health care that make a difference in the lives of hardworking Americans.

Our party and our country are stronger because of the work she has done throughout her life, and I'm a better candidate for having had the privilege of competing with her.

Senator Clinton will be invaluable to our efforts to win in November, and I look forward to campaigning alongside her to bring this country the change it so desperately needs.

Hillary and her supporters are joining us at an urgent moment.

It's going to require a new level of commitment from every single one of us to build a national campaign in the general election.

And we're going win this election the right way -- by growing our grassroots network of ordinary people giving only what they can afford.

Will you help bring a new supporter into the movement by promising to match their first-time donation?

plezWorld Supports Barack Obama

It's time for all of us to come together to take on John McCain in the general election. John McCain offers another four years of George Bush's policies, which our country simply cannot afford.

To win, we must continue building an unprecedented organization in all 50 states. And that will only happen if we all work together, side-by-side.

Thank you for joining this movement and supporting a new kind of politics.

Together we can do more than just win an election. Together we can change this country, and we can change the world.

And we are honored to have Hillary Clinton at our side as we do it.

Paid for by Obama for America
