Moving on...

On Saturday, Hillary finally decided it was time to move on. She let go of her aspirations to become the Democratic Presidential nominee (at least for now) and threw her support behind her fellow candidate, Obama.

Letting go and moving on can be a good allows us to see clearly the path we should be taking, the path that will lead us where we truly want to be. I learned that myself this past weekend. Like Hillary, I have let go and decided to move on. To my surprise I was awarded with a wonderful gift and had one of the best weekends I have had in a very long time. I have learned that we can't always see what God has planned for us...and that's okay, as long as we Trust in Him.

Hillary, I am sure is going to struggle the next several months as she tries to envision her future...a future that doesn't include her living in and pillaging from the While House once again. Sadly, I don't believe she has the Trust in God, which I mentioned above, that she will need to carry her through this rough time...but thankfully; we will be able to at least MOVE ON with the campaign and perhaps finally hear and have the truth about Obama exposed in the coming months.

Clinton exits, endorses Obama
Senator strongly urges support for former rival

WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton ended her campaign yesterday with a full-throated endorsement of Barack Obama and a stirring summation of her bid to become the first woman president.

Clinton used a nationally televised speech in downtown Washington to praise the party's likely 2008 nominee and urge her backers to work as hard for his election as they had for hers.

In abandoning a campaign she launched more than 17 months ago, Clinton congratulated Obama "on the victory he has won. ... I endorse him and throw my full support behind him."

There were scattered boos at mentions of Obama's name but mainly cheers as Clinton pleaded with the Democratic "family" to "come together" after a "tough fight."

Her remarks appeared to meet, if not exceed, the expectations of Obama's campaign, which is eager to close rifts within the party and attract many of the voters, including women, Hispanics and working-class whites, who tilted strongly to Clinton in the primaries.

Obama, in a statement released by his campaign, said he was "thrilled and honored" to gain Clinton's support and praised her "valiant and historic campaign." He added that he is "a better candidate" for having had to compete against her.

Portions of Clinton's 28-minute speech, delivered in an air-conditioned hall on a sweltering afternoon, were drawn directly from her campaign stump speech. But she departed in one significant respect by addressing feminism, a topic she largely avoided in the campaign.
