Hillary Clinton delivered a ringing presidential endorsement for Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention in Denver Tuesday night, saying, "I'm here tonight as a proud mother, as a proud Democrat, as a proud senator from New York, a proud American, and a proud supporter of Barack Obama."
After an inspirational video narrated by Chelsea Clinton, Chelsea introduced "my hero, and my mother" to the appreciative DNC crowd, who welcomed the New York senator with thunderous applause. Former President Bill Clinton watched from the wings to show his love and support for his wife.
"Whether you voted for me or you voted for Barack, the time is now to unite as a single party for a single purpose," she said. "We are on the same team and none of us can afford to sit on the sidelines."
Dressed in a tangerine power suit, Hillary also added a shout-out to her staunch female contingent of supporters, whom she affectionately called the "sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits," saying, "Thank you, because you never gave in and you never gave up."
She also praised Michelle Obama's DNC speech, saying, "Anyone who saw Michelle's speech last night will know that she will be a great first lady for America."
Obama's former political foe ran an extremely competitive campaign until the eleventh hour until she conceded the race back in June due to Obama's superior tally of delegates. She has been a staunch ally and supporter of the Democratic presidential candidate ever since.
