Watch Hillary Clinton’s Concession Speech Live

Okay, the feed is down now, so a couple thoughts…

  1. This was probably one of the better speeches she has given on the campaign trail, and she certainly hammered home the importance of not switching over to McCain. You could definitely hear the boo-birds when she first started saying his name, but they eventually died down.
  2. I think it was a VERY good call for Obama to not be on that stage today. They can have the classic, arm raised photo op later, but this was her time to talk to her supporters and leave this campaign as her own person.
  3. She had one line in particular that really resonated with me and it went something like this, “We may not have broken the glass ceiling this time around, but it’s got about 18 million cracks in it and the light is shining through.” Definitely a historical line for a historical candidate who, even with all of her flaws, still put up one hell of a fight.
  4. Could she be the VP? I don’t know, but this speech certainly helped her case. Ultimately, I don’t think it’s going to go to her, and I’m not sure if the reports that she wants the job are even accurate. It’ll be interesting to see how this next month shakes out.

So that’s all I’ve got. Anybody else see it? Thoughts? Likes? Dislikes?
