Just in Time for Hillary's Speech

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has launched a new Web site, “Clinton vs. Obama.”

By the way,
Hillary is running late for her big speech.  In fact, she hasn't left her house, yet.  She must be waiting on Bill...

Update:  The Clintons certainly have a flair for the dramatic.  It's 12:42, now.  MSNBC has just shown footage of her car approaching the National Building Museum.  This was sort of like the O.J. Simpson white SUV footage ...

Update:  The Building Museum is a terrific venue.  The Clintons look great.  I wasn't even sure if I was going to watch this, but now it looks like an iconic moment.

Update:  I do think that one thing that has been lost in this election is just how historical Hillary's campaign has been.  She has obviously been the most successful female presidential candidate in history.  Though her effort failed, her candidacy has, to a certain extent, broken the glass ceiling. 

Update:  12:54 - Hillary concedes and endorses Obama.  "Join me in working as hard for Barack Obama as you have for me."  She started off strong, but when she segued into the concession part of the speech, her smile left her.  Now she's reading the words.  Now it's the mean Hillary, again.

Update:  Now, it seems as if she's saying that any Democrat is better than any Republican.  That's not exactly a ringing endorsement for Obama.  She just had a big line about how she's standing with Obama to say:  "Yes We Can!"  She looked pained.

Update:  Her advice at the end reminds me of Nixon's farewell speech.
