“No Way, No How, No McCain”

Any lingering questions in the press about former rival Hillary Clinton’s willingness to endorse Democrat Barack Obama as the next president of the United States should have been dispelled by her rousing speech last night before the Democratic National Convention in Denver. She said, in part:
“[W]e don’t need four more years, of the last eight years. More economic stagnation, and less affordable health care. More high gas prices, and less alternative energy. ... John McCain says the economy is fundamentally sound. John McCain doesn’t think that 47 million people without health insurance is a crisis. John McCain wants to privatize Social Security. And in 2008, he still thinks it’s okay when women don’t earn equal pay for equal work. With an agenda like that, it makes sense that George Bush and John McCain will be together next week in the Twin Cities. Because these days they’re awfully hard to tell apart.”
