Open Letter to Senator Clinton
Advertisements [?]
Dear Mrs. Clinton,

You took your shot.

You had every advantage going in. Universal name recognition, huge sums of money, the backing of the
Democratic Party machine aparatus, a former president as spokesperson, a huge number of super-delegates who
committed to you before the first vote was cast, tens of millions in personal wealth available in a crisis, and the deep
pride you deservingly inspire in both men AND women as the most serious female contender for the Presidency in US history.

You tried a variety -- indeed a good number -- of strategies, messages, PR, slogans, spin, advertising, tones, advisors & managers.
You offered many sound policies, plans, papers, and proposals which have enriched the debate, and informed the electorate.

You (mostly) fought the good fight, based upon your belief that you should be President. You turned negative
at times, but found that this was not effective at increasing your own appeal, but on the whole your campaign
will still be judged as honorable.

Now, the people have spoken.

Please wrap things up with dignity. Not just for the good of you and your husband.
Not just for the good of your loyal, dignified, and passionate supporters. Not just for the good of your Party.

But rather for the good of each and every family - each person who deserves a better future - in this great nation.
Each of us, who cannot afford to have John McCain emerge as president of this land.

Yours truly,
