HRC on BHO’s speech:
I did not have a chance to see or to read yet Sen. Obama’s speech. But I’m very glad that he gave it. It’s an important topic. Issues of race and gender in America have been complicated throughout our history, and they are complicated in this primary campaign.
There have been detours and pitfalls along the way. But we should remember that this is an historic moment for the Democratic Party, and for our country. We will be nominating the first African-American or woman for the Presidency of the United States, and that is something that all Americans can and should celebrate.
Good for her!
