Hillary's Speech: I was There

Clinton did a great job last night, as I expected. She's a pro.

Her supporters were ecstatic in the hall, cheering and crying. I was standing with a group of Obama supporters who were skittish beforehand, obviously because of the media hype. They too were thrilled with her speech, spontaneously clapping and high fiving the big applause lines. Lots of love for Hill tonight from Dems of all stripes.

I'm sure Jack Cafferty and Chris Matthews won't stop flogging the dead horse until somebody finally stages an intervention for their uncontrolled Clinton addiction, but I would hope that the rest of the gasbags could give it a rest for a while. (McCain shills, not so much.)

She had many good lines tonight, but the one that really sticks is this one:
