While its still anyone’s guess what Hilllary will say this weekend, we managed to find what we suspect is a leaked version of her concession speech. Will the dream ticket become a reality? Or will Hillary be forced to wallow in defeat? Perhaps this underground version of her concession speech might shed some light on the ominous outcome… 🙂
(WASHINGTON) — A draft copy of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s planned concession speech leaked this morning after the candidate inadvertently emailed it to her entire “buddy list” and both copies then fell into the hands of the news media.
In the speech, Sen. Clinton attempts to lay the groundwork for Democrat unity, based on what she calls “a kind of unshakable bond that can only be sustained by proper treatment of one’s defeated adversaries.”
Here are some excerpts from the speech which Sen. Clinton is expected to deliver this weekend.
“No matter the outcome of the presidential race this November, the year 2008 is a watershed for Democrats. For the first time in the history of either party, a woman selflessly withdrew from a race she was winning to lend a merciful, helping hand to a young African-American in his time of need.”
“We have both broken down barriers, Sen. Obama and I, in this historic race. However, since he is only half black, but I am all woman, it goes without saying that my accomplishment in nearly winning is the greater civil rights triumph, mathematically speaking.”
“I will campaign vigorously for the party’s nominee, whoever that may be. I do it out of a sense of noblesse oblige — my nobility obligates me. I hope Sen. Obama sees my endorsement, and pledge of delegates, as a hand up, not a hand out.”
“If Barack Obama becomes the next president of the United States, let it never be said that he won only because he’s black, but rather that he won because a gracious white woman sacrificed her own ambitions for the good of humanity.”
“In closing, I want to personally address Sen. Obama by paraphrasing President John F. Kennedy, who, coincidentally, was assassinated like his brother Robert was: Sen. Obama, ask not what Hillary Clinton can do for you. Ask what you can do for the woman who was almost the first female president of the United States.” — as reported by satirist Scott Ott / ScrappleFace
You have to hand it to Scott Ott, he really has a way of summarizing months of political animosity in a few paragraphs. It remains to be seen if the elitist streak in Barack “Messiah” Obama accepts her magnanimous sacrifice of gracefully bowing out and letting him win the nomination.
Can you picture a White House with Barack, Michelle, Hillary and Bill all sitting around the dinner table sharing supper and singing goom-ba-ya? Just think of all the great material for the late night TV comics!! Bill secretly praying for Hillary to land the VP slot so he can get a chance to sample the dark meat at the other end of the dinner table. “My Belle” Michelle needing more than a chastity belt to preserve her wifely fidelity while under the same White House roof with naughty Bill. But then again… it’s widely known that politics makes for some strange bedfellows. There is no reason to believe that this campaign will be no exception. ROTFL — scotty
