Our country has been assailed, bludgeoned, insulted, raped, and humiliated by the Cheney and Bushite Republicans and we must not let our golden chance to rid ourselves and our country of these people go aglimmering because of the intransigent ego of the Clintons. The arithmetic of the situation is plain enough. Hillary cannot possibly win the nomination by any democratic means.
We are asking you to step forward as a group, putting aside each of your personal ambitions, to state publicly that you believe the time has come to rally around the campaign of Senator Barack Obama to defeat the Republicans utterly and completely. This is not the time or place to debate the minute differences between the candidates; it is the time to recognize that one of them has a commanding lead and the other seems to be willing to do and say anything to tear him down. We are proud of the high road Senator Obama has taken and we are ashamed of the low road that Senator Clinton has recently adopted as her own.
Stand up Al, John and Bill, and bring this dangerous foolishness to an end.
