Ding-dong, the witch is dead... And, of course, McSame wants to poach her disgruntled supporters...

friggin' FINALLY...!
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will endorse Senator Barack Obama on Saturday, bringing a close to her 17-month campaign for the White House, aides said. Her decision came after Democrats urged her on Wednesday to leave the race and allow the party to coalesce around Mr. Obama.

Howard Wolfson, one of Mrs. Clinton’s chief strategists, and other aides said she would express support for Mr. Obama and party unity at an event in Washington that day. One adviser said that Mrs. Clinton would concede defeat, congratulate Mr. Obama and proclaim him the party’s nominee, while pledging to do what was needed to assure his victory.

a few powerful folks must have had a "come to jesus" chat with her behind closed doors... they probably also insisted that she leave her broom outside... (sorry, i'm not feeling terribly "gracious"...)

cue the poacher...

Memo to disappointed women supporters of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton: Republican John McCain wants your vote.

McCain, the senator from Arizona who has wrapped up his party's White House nomination, moved on Wednesday to woo women and other Clinton backers whose disappointment over her defeat by Illinois Sen. Barack Obama could cause them to switch teams.

"I would welcome any of Senator Clinton's supporters' vote," McCain told reporters in Louisiana, adding he would seek backing from people across the political spectrum.

"I think there's a lot of Senator Clinton's supporters who will support me because of their belief that Senator Obama does not have the experience or the knowledge or the judgment to address this nation's national security challenges," McCain said.

i suppose if someone was misguided enough to support hillary, they're probably also misguided enough to support mccain... establishment look-alikes, dontcha know... i'm just hoping that, beneath all that inspiring rhetoric, obama isn't one of 'em...
