In this twisted tale of realpolitik, Hillary Clinton has been following a long and winding yellow brick road to nowhere for weeks now. She proved to be an odd mixture of Dorothy, trying to get back home to the White House, and the Wizard of Oz, standing behind a curtain of distortions, misrepresentations and racial coded pronouncements while distracting us with some dazzling smoke and mirror work.
Her journey ended today.
Hillary suspended her historic presidential bid to throw her unqualified endorsement behind Barack Obama’s historic presidential bid.
"Today as I suspend my campaign, I congratulate him on the victory he has won and the extraordinary campaign he has won. I endorse him and throw my full support behind him and I ask of you to join me in working as hard for Barack Obama as you have for me," the former First Lady said in her gut-wrenching 28-minute speech.
Just days ago, Hillary was still hiding behind the curtain, sending out smoking signals that insisted that she was the more qualified candidate. Meanwhile the Tin Man, aka Bill, was complaining about the msm giving her a raw deal.
Well, now it’s a done deal—Obama’s the one. "The way to continue our fight now to accomplish the goals for which we stand is to take our energy, our passion, our strength and do all we can to help elect Barack Obama, the next president of the United States."
The senator from New York may never be able to go home again, but she’s finally left the Land of Oz, landing gracefully back on Terra firm. The Democratic Party will need her spirit, feistyness and tenacity—a long, tough battle against its wounded and weary adversary is already underway.
