Friends we have run the race but its just not gonna work. We need to look at the greater good and have to admit that our number one priority today is to make sure that a Democrat wins the election in November and changes America.
It is clear to me and to many of you that Hillary Clinton can't win the general election. We don't need to visit the history right now but must acknowledge a simple fact that Americans elect people to the Presidency who actually believe in something - who actually have strongly held core beliefs. Unfortunately Hillary Clinton isn't that person. Senator Clinton believes what is convenient to believe. Here beliefs are determined by her pollster. This, in no small part, is the reason she is despised by most Independents and many Democrats. She cannot unite the Democratic Party, she cannot attract Independent voters, she cannot win.
There are other issues that must be addressed - the people want change and America needs change. How can Hillary Clinton, the Corporate Candidate, change anything? Folks are not fools. They know Corporations and their lobbyists don't support her out of the goodness of their hearts. She is owned by then - lock, stock, an barrel. Make no mistake about it - once in office she would surround herself with the same lobbyists and Corporate interests that have financed her Campaign. They will determine her solutions and there won't be change.
It is time for us to admit that I will not be the nominee. We must look to the future and do the greater good. Today the greater good is for me to endorse Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States. He is a man who has the core set of beliefs that the voters demand, he is a candidate that has shown his ability to attract Independents, he understands the need for change and isn't encumbered by those who surround him. Barack Obama should be the next President of the United States.
