From the DNC, Hillary Clinton- April

Around 2:30 p.m. Around 8:45 p.m.

Sen. Hillary Clinton Sen. Hillary Clinton

With U.S. Rep., Ciro Rodriguez

Tonight Hillary Clinton spoke. It was eloquent, practiced, and a very sad moment for some. I met a delegate today on the bus and he had Hillary stickers on his pants and buttons on his credential pass and shirt. I asked him what he planned to do once Hillary legally released him and other pledged delegates this week; he said that without-a-doubt, he would still put in his vote for her. He told me that he and his constituents were Clinton supporters so it only made sense that he would continue to show that support.
I met many Clinton supporters tonight and I saw the slight disappointment that they carried with them. I continue to ponder the "what-ifs" of the long primary season, and I assume others are as well.
I am not sure there is any better way to promote unity than what Hillary Clinton is doing. She has shown more grace, dignity, and integrity than she should have to.
Unity. Interesting concept.
The convention is half way over and I am exhausted!

I don't understand why you think Hilary Clinton has shown more grace and integrity than she should have to. My question would be what comes first with her -- herself or the party? From where I sit, she sure took a long time coming around. I was impressed with her comments this week, but thought it might be too little too late. It also worries me that there are so many in the party who seem to have a stronger allegiance to Clinton than to principles that she and Obama share.
