28. As an ardent non-Clinton supporter... I found her speech one of the best she's ever given.
Even when you take out the endorsement part (around 6-7 minutes worth I think) - it was a phenomenal speech. I told my DH that I wish she would have run her entire campaign like that speech.

She derserves :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
