Favorite part of speech

"This is the story of America. Of women and men who defy the odds and never give up.

How do we give this country back to them?

By following the example of a brave New Yorker, a woman who risked her life to shepherd slaves along the Underground Railroad.

And on that path to freedom, Harriet Tubman had one piece of advice.

If you hear the dogs, keep going.

If you see the torches in the woods, keep going.

If they're shouting after you, keep going.

Don't ever stop. Keep going.

If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.

Even in the darkest of moments, ordinary Americans have found the faith to keep going.

I've seen it in you. I've seen it in our teachers and firefighters, nurses and police officers, small business owners and union workers, the men and women of our military — you always keep going."

I heart Hillary

Stop, your making me tear up again. It was a great speech!Here's some of my favorite parts....

"Whether you voted for me, or voted for Barack, the time is now to unite as a single party with a single purpose. We are on the same team, and none of us can sit on the sidelines.

This is a fight for the future. And it’s a fight we must win.

I haven’t spent the past 35 years in the trenches advocating for children, campaigning for universal health care, helping parents balance work and family, and fighting for women’s rights at home and around the world . . . to see another Republican in the White House squander the promise of our country and the hopes of our people.

And you haven’t worked so hard over the last 18 months, or endured the last eight years, to suffer through more failed leadership.


No way. No how. No McCain."

AND...

"Tonight we need to remember what a Presidential election is really about. When the polls have closed, and the ads are finally off the air, it comes down to you -- the American people, your lives, and your children’s futures."

ALSO...

"To my supporters, my champions -- my sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits – from the bottom of my heart: Thank you."

LOVED IT!!!!

love those moments too Jesse! She was gracious and through it all i clearly heard her say... Don't let me down by letting McCain in!

For some Chicagoans it was seeing the Cubs vs the Sox... Hillary is a Cub fan and as we say...'It's Gonna Happen'
