A Shining Exit


There's not much more to say than that that was a class act.

Hillary Clinton did everything she could have been asked to do in uniting her supporters behind Barack Obama.

She also gave a speech that captured the historical weight not only of her run, but also of her family's exit -- for now -- from the presidential stage.

It was a speech that will help redefine not only her 2008 run, but what we remember of Bill (despite all of his recent lapses) as the steward of two of the three Democratic presidential terms America has seen in the last four decades.

I'm a bit surprised she never named John McCain by name. But this was really about uniting Democrats against Republicans in the name of progress. And as that it's hard to imagine a more effective effort. Bravo.
