Clinton Unity Speech - Yes We Can!

12:44 PM ET - Senator Hillary Clinton, her Mother, husband Bill and Chelsie finally arrive to give her speech. Hillary goes straight to the podium and receives a huge applause. Thank You! Well...., speech is interrupted by applause, Well, this isn't the party I had planned but I sure like the company. Thanked all of her supporters. To all of those women in their 80's and 90's who were born before women could vote - thank you for your support. 18 million of you gave me your support and I will continue to stand strong with you.

The way to continue the fight now is to do all we can to help elect Barack Obama the next President of the United States. Congratulated Obama, is suspending her campaign, I endorse him and throw all of my support to him. I asked all of you to give him the same support you have given me. When I started this race I intended to take back the WH for the people and with Obama we can do that. Our paths are now merged with unity to turn our country around.

She then went into the importance of universal health care. Spoke of the failures of the George W. Bush administration - we must have change. Today I am standing with Senator Obama to say "Yes We Can!" - We must help elect Barack Obama our President- she uses this phrase repeatedly after stating a change that is needed in our country.

Both she and Obama set milestones by showing a Woman and an African-American can be President. On a personal note, on how she felt about being a woman running for President. I want to build an America where women enjoy equal opportunities, equal pay and equal respect. No acceptable prejudices in the 21st century. Spoke of all the women who have been launched into space including one in the space shuttle today - We will someday launch a woman into the White House. Your support helped pave the way.

We must work together and I personally will work my heart out to make sure Barack Obama is the next President - I ask you to do the same.

Thank you to all you have done.

We will post the video here when we find it. A good speech. Let the spin begin. Full Text of Speech.
