Part 2 of Hillary Clinton’s March 20, 2008 Presidential Primary victory speech in Louisville, KY where the “nominee whoever she may be” spoke to her jubilant supporters.
Kentucky has a knack for picking Presidents — this state delivered two terms to a President named Clinton . . . and it’s often been said that as Kentucky goes so goes the nation.
Neither Senator Obama nor I has won the 2,010 delegates required to secure the nomination, and because this race is so close, still separated by less than 200 delegates out of more than 4,400, neither Senator Obama nor I will have reached that magic number when the voting ends on June 3. So our party will have a tough choice to make:
Who’s ready to lead our paty at the top of the ticket?
Who is ready to defeat Senator McCain in the swing states and among swing voters?
Who’s ready to rebuild the economy, end the war in Iraq, protect our national security as Commander in Chief?
Who is ready on day one to lead?
