DENVER – The mantra of the Democratic National Convention calls for members to come together behind Sen. Barack Obama for president and former rival Sen. Hillary Clinton did just that Tuesday evening.
Calling herself a proud supporter of Barack Obama, Clinton addressed her adoring fans who made up roughly half the convention delegates. “If they want a different America for themselves and their families then they need to vote for Barack Obama,” she said.
Clinton also spent a portion of her speech praising the fortitude of women. “My mother was born before women could vote - my daughter got to vote for her mother for president,” she said.
Clinton praised Obama’s wife Michelle. “Michelle will be a great first lady ... Americans are fortunate Barack Obama will have Michelle by his side,” she said.
During the day, loyalists from state Democratic Chairman Brian Colón to New Mexico’s oldest and youngest delegates, called for bringing the party together to win back the White House.
Talk of unity also laced a special lunch for New Mexico delegates and dignitaries Tuesday at the restaurant Nine 75 in downtown Denver. ConocoPhillips of Houston sponsored the lunch.
