Running a relay race is not always easy to do. Relay teams are usually made up of the best athletes on the team, and as such, are very selective. There is also an aspect to the relay race that is not involved in the other races: the baton. In a relay, you must ensure that you always maintain possession of the baton, and when it comes time to pass it, you must make sure it gets to the other runner without dropping it. Dropping the baton can inevitably cause the team to lose.
Today, Senator Hillary Clinton successfully passed the baton to Senator Obama without dropping it. She said passionately, “We need to do all we can to help elect Barack Obama.” “Please work as hard for Barack Obama as you did for me.” “Today I am standing with Senator Obama to say, Yes we can!” Senator Clinton repeated the refrain, “We must help elect Barack Obama our President!” three times.
Senator Clinton reminded her supporters that there have only been 3 democratic Presidents in the last 40 years and America must have a democratic President in November. She reiterated that America cannot afford to have a republican president in November otherwise all will be lost. She emphasized to her supporters that they MUST elect Senator Obama as President.
Senator Clinton clearly and unequivocally implored her supporters to join forces with Senator Obama and his campaign. She said that every moment wasted looking back at what could have been, keeps us all as democrats from moving forward to what can be.
Senator Clinton endorsed Senator Obama enthusiastically, powerfully and completely; we couldn’t ask for anything more. Clearly, Senator Clinton successfully passed the baton. Well done Senator Clinton and thank you!!!
