Class Act

I wanted you to be one of the first to know: on Saturday, I will hold an event in Washington D.C. to thank everyone who has supported my campaign. Over the course of the last 16 months, I have been privileged and touched to witness the incredible dedication and sacrifice of so many people working for our campaign. Every minute you put into helping us win, every dollar you gave to keep up the fight meant more to me than I can ever possibly tell you.

On Saturday, I will extend my congratulations to Senator Obama and my support for his candidacy. This has been a long and hard-fought campaign, but as I have always said, my differences with Senator Obama are small compared to the differences we have with Senator McCain and the Republicans.

I have said throughout the campaign that I would strongly support Senator Obama if he were the Democratic Party's nominee, and I intend to deliver on that promise.

When I decided to run for president, I knew exactly why I was getting into this race: to work hard every day for the millions of Americans who need a voice in the White House.

I made you -- and everyone who supported me -- a promise: to stand up for our shared values and to never back down. I'm going to keep that promise today, tomorrow, and for the rest of my life.

I will be speaking on Saturday about how together we can rally the party behind Senator Obama. The stakes are too high and the task before us too important to do otherwise.

I know as I continue my lifelong work for a stronger America and a better world, I will turn to you for the support, the strength, and the commitment that you have shown me in the past 16 months. And I will always keep faith with the issues and causes that are important to you.

In the past few days, you have shown that support once again with hundreds of thousands of messages to the campaign, and again, I am touched by your thoughtfulness and kindness.

I can never possibly express my gratitude, so let me say simply, thank you.

What Should Hillary Do?

Hillary asks: What should I do?

OK, I am game - here goes.

1. The country needs a Dem as President and it will be Obama.

2. McCain will not be easy - Obama needs all the help you can give.

3. Yes, you received 18 million votes, but they were for the country more than for you.

4. Do NOT cause a floor fight in Denver.

5. DO - get a say in policy - the country needs that from you.

6. VP - not VP - makes no difference - serve your country by vetting ALL Obama's policies.

7. Do - bring your core to the party: older voters, hispanics, working whites, etc. Make Obama's case to them and win the election. Obama cannot do it without you.

8. May God save the United States of America.

Let's All Be Adequate

What do we all need?

After election - and perhaps as part of the general election campaign - the country needs competence in government.

The Bush legacy is incompetent cronies who systematically encourage law evasion.

The new administration really needs to restore simple competence in governing. As a citizen and taxpayer. I expect at least that from my government.

Let's have a holiday from new laws and just get everything working again.

Markets do a lot of things well, but markets require effective regulation to function best.

The mortgage meltdown is a regulation/Bush failure and not a market malfunction.

Let's fix the problems.
