Denver (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton summoned millions of voters who supported her in the primaries to send Barack Obama to the White House tuesday, declaring in a Democratic National Convention speech that the man who defeated her “is my candidate, and he must be our president.”
In a prime time address, the former First Lady added “we don't have a moment to lose or a vote to spare.”
The packed convention floor became a sea of white “Hillary” signs as the New York Senator strode to the podium. And thousands of democrats cheered as she took a pre-speech sip of water.
Her prepared remarks included a full-throated endorsement of Obama. But she didn't indicate whether she would have her name placed in nomination or seek a formal roll call of the states when the nomination is awarded by delegates tomorrow night.
Calling herself a “proud supporter of Barack Obama, Clinton dismissed republican John McCain with a few choice words.
“No way. No how. No McCain,” she said as the hall erupted in cheers.
Clinton added “we don't need four more years … of the last eight years.”
