Clinton to Quit and Endorse Obama on Friday

Again, about damn time.

She, of course, needed some convincing.

Good for the Democrats for having some sense for once. Maybe they won't blow it this time. [Unless they decide to force Clinton on the ticket that is.]

I don't think anyone but Clinton supporters are looking to force an Obama/Clinton ticket.

Everyone else is far more interested in getting ready for November, and the sooner Hillary gets out of the way, the better.

i believe your statement to be a bit myopic... lets understand that the amount of delegates and votes hillary has earned are not JUST stats, they are voices and concerns as well of people Obama must have in his camp and hopefully govern if he is to achieve the office of president ("Not red states, not blue states..." you remember the quote.

Her timing and pace is acceptable for concession(her tone is another issue all together), her decision to wait until saturday to suspend/concede NO DIFFERENT from John Edwards' suspension and LONG wait to eventually endorse Obama. Its was politically expedient for him and likewise, hillary.

So let the dust settle. her getting out of the way, on her own schedule is part in parcel of getting ready for november.

By the way, i'm an Obama supporter... but her still has to earn it as far as i'm concerned

I don't get this "need time to endorse" theory. Why don't we designate the day after the last primary as "Psychiatric Assistance" day. The day after that the winner should attend a counseling session with the loser so that the loser's feelings are all validated. The week after that should be for the five steps of grief.

For God's sake - if minorities, women all want the public to take them seriously when they want a seat at the table, they need to play by established rules. There is a reason for the loser to graciously endorse the winner and go on with the campaign. Thinking like this will lead to what is happening in Zimbabwe where the loser does not acknowledge the winner and there are riots on the street.

Clinton to suspend? She is incredible. What they are thinking. I think that this is the first time that a candidate who loss the primary is pushing to be in the ticket. She is like a
volture waiting for the opportunity to be fed. Her comments about Kennedy assessination was enough but she is still waiting for something to happen and that is the reason she didn’t drop out, she suspended her campaing for better opportunity like a volture. The canidite who won has the choice to pick and the Clinton’s Gang are claiming a right that is not theres. The Obama/Clinton ticket will be a nightmare, and Bill Clinton will be a guillotine to close to our next President. We want a new era, we don’t want to go back to the past, we don’t want any more Monica Lewinsky case. We want honor and prestige back to the White House.

My "about damn time" statement was a reference to what I said when Edwards officially endorsed, which I also pointed out was because he saw his window for political gain closing.

Additionally, there has been no doubt who was going to win this race for the last two or three months.

So, I reiterate: about damn time. Now let's get on with the real matter at hand, winning the general election.
