In his Aug. 26 cartoon, Lee Judge predicted the content of Hillary Clinton’s address to the Democratic Convention with the caption, “It’s time to make my feelings clear.” Hillary is at the podium and behind her is a sign with her name in big, bold letters followed by “supports Barack Obama” in tiny print.
Hillary’s speech was not one of self aggrandizement. Rather, she asked those women who voted for her if they were voting for her or for the causes she espoused. She pointed out that Obama would be more concerned about women’s issues than McCain. She listed the failures of the Bush administration and strongly urged her disappointed supporters to vote for Obama.
The speech was not selfish. Judge prejudged it and his judgment was wrong.
