Obama thanks Clinton

From Barack Oama’s web site, this message of thanks to Hillary Clinton:

Obviously, I am thrilled and honored to have Senator Clinton’s support. But more than that, I honor her today for the valiant and historic campaign she has run. She shattered barriers on behalf of my daughters and women everywhere, who now know that there are no limits to their dreams. And she inspired millions with her strength, courage and unyielding commitment to the cause of working Americans. Our party and our country are stronger because of the work she has done throughout her life, and I’m a better candidate for having had the privilege of competing with her in this campaign. No one knows better than Senator Clinton how desperately America and the American people need change, and I know she will continue to be in the forefront of that battle this fall and for years to come.

In a post on Talking Points Memo, David Kurtz offered this praise:

….she adopted and embraced some of Obama’s best lines and themes. That was the most effective rhetorical device in her speech — and rang truer as an endorsement than merely saying, I support Obama.
