Hillary Urges Unity, Attacks McCain


Senator Clinton held a press conference this morning after the New York Delegation's breakfast. She reiterated that she was at the convention to support Obama and that it was his convention. She wants a Democratic President so that Democratic policies can have a chance to reach fruition.
"Electing John McCain would be a mistake for our country. That is the overriding reality. Anyone who voted for me has so much more in common with Senator Obama than they will ever have with Senator McCain and the Republican Party. I have been consistent in delivering that message. That is what I will be doing here."
She will tell her delegates that she is voting for Barack Obama.

The video is nine minutes of the press conference. I will post a transcript if available or please leave a link in comments.
