I was an avid Clinton suporter throughout the primaries and was deeply disappointed that she didn’t win the nomination.  Her speech both salved and reinforced that feeling.  She has every reason in the world to be jaded and cynical, but still maintains an energy and hopefulness that’s really convincing and compelling.  I hope she can lend those to the Obama campaign in a meaningful way, which (at least today) translates as meaningful-to-her-staunchest-supporters. 

More on this to come, I’m sure…
