Yes we can!

I wonder what the race for the Democratic nomination would have been like, had the Hillary Rodham Clinton who said this during her campaign-suspension/Barack endorsement speech been running.

"Although we weren't able to shatter this highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it, and the light is shining through like never before," she said.

"It is this belief and optimism that Sen. Obama and I share," Clinton said. "That has inspired so many millions of supporters to make their voices heard. So today, I am standing with Sen. Obama to say, 'Yes, we can.'"

The policy differences between the two candidates save for the gas tax holiday weren't that stark. Even health care was similar, though I honestly favored Hil-Rod's plan more because it was a little less far from the socialist plan that I favor. I supported Obama more because he inspired me. This Hillary might have inspired me.
