Hillary rises to the occasion

Hillary Clinton appeals to her sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits:

I am honored to be here tonight. A proud mother. A proud Democrat. A proud American. And a proud supporter of Barack Obama. …

I haven’t spent the past 35 years in the trenches advocating for children, campaigning for universal health care, helping parents balance work and family, and fighting for women’s rights at home and around the world, to see another Republican in the White House squander the promise of our country and the hopes of our people.

And you haven’t worked so hard over the last 18 months, or endured the last eight years, to suffer through more failed leadership.

No way. No how. No McCain.

I trust that the sisterhood (PUMAs* and all) were listening.

Hillary and Chelsea

*PUMA:  Party Unity My Ass — a particularly militant Hillary faction who are willing to elect John McCain, notwithstanding his regressive views on women’s issues, just to spite Obama.
