Hillary Clinton's Speech in Denver

My reaction? "Goddamn and Holy Shit! She did it!" I'm (finally) sitting here in the bloggers' lounge at the Pepsi Center, where I heard her speech, and from where I sit, she did what she needed to do.

In the first two sentences, she unequivocally supported Barrack Obama. Then she talked about her campaign -- about the people she was in it for -- and then she laid it on the line with one question: "Were you in it for me? Or were you in it for them?"

The answer was clear: You've got to be in it for them, and if you're in it for them, you've got to elect Barrack Obama.

But you saw the same speech. What do you think?
