Day 2 in Denver - U-N-I-T-Y
Another day in the Mile High City. Another host of Democrat well-wishers for the presumptive One, "Barry" Barack Obama. Today's schedule of speakers included.... oh hell! Nobody cares what Rahm Emanuel had to say.
Tonight's the night that she spoke.
New York Senator, former front-runner, and occasional cry-baby, Hillary Clinton took to the stage tonight at the Pepsi Center. Borrowing a page from Queen Latifah's playbook, the former First Lady implored the fractious Democratic party to rally around the tall, skinny kid with the funny name, and unify. She praised Barack Obama, his wife Michelle, and spoke of the necessity to keep John McCain and his politics of yesterday at bay.
And in all fairness, it was a pretty good speech. Hillary praised the suffragette movements of the early 20th Century, citing how far they've come. She praised women everywhere, invoking the struggles of her mother's generation, as well as the hope of her daughter's. While in the end, she kept it about Barack, and ultimately the Party.
Now, I'd like to say that's all we'd be hearing from the Clintonistas this week. I'd like to say that'd be the ribbon on the unfortunate package that was the 2008 Democratic Primary. But something tells me there'll be more from this fringe element tomorrow night. Something tells me that lurking somewhere in the shadows of the former front-runner's pantsuit, waits a dark, menacing and groping presence.
