Schneider: A red meat speech for a hungry crowd

 Hillary Clinton addresses delegates at the Democratic National Convention.
Hillary Clinton addresses delegates at the Democratic National Convention.

DENVER (CNN) - This is the closest thing to a red meat speech this convention has gotten. And man, are these delegates hungry.

Watch: "I support Barack Obama," Hillary Clinton says

"No way. No how. No McCain" is likely to get picked up.

The Clintons have always been devoted to the cause of stopping the Republican right. It’s the message that unites Clinton and Obama supporters.

    The democrats need to act like they have nothing to lose. Borrow a line from the Clinton Era...IT'S THE ECONOMY (AGAIN) STUPID !

    IF Obama looses Hillary will NEVER be President because she'll get all the blame.

    GUARANTEED!

    This speech just proves why Hillary should have been the nominee.

    CNN's Sound from the Floor meter is broken. It is so off from the crowd's reaction – totally fake.

  10. Clinton, no, wait, McCain Supporter

    Wow. I can certainly see why the DNC thought Barack Obama was such swell guy, while Hillary's resume is so thin.........

    Too bad Barack Obama is so full of himself and so intimidated by Hillary that he's downright afraid of her. If I were Obama, I would be, too!

  11. No Way Obama

    Any Democrat can proudly vote for McCain, its not shameful to endorse a perosn of integrity.

    I'm watching her speech, and I think she's doing great, super...and if her supporters did not listen to her and vote for Obama, then the problem is more personnal then anything else.

    Hillary stated that she was a proud mother, but I didn't hear her say she was a proud wife. If Bill did not cheat on her, there would have never been a Senator Clinton. It is depressing that all it takes to get elected is to have a spouse cheat on you. I've so glad she wont be President.

    Shut up Schneider – like I told Gergen, if we want red meat, we can go to our wealthy republican neighbors and beg for hamburger.

    On Hillary:

    If Obama wins, she'll definitely have a big role in the future of this country (without Bill and his Cigars – he he he he).

    If McWarmonger wins, she'll be the republican joke of the century for all the free ads.

    We each get only one precious vote. Don't waste it.

    The Clintons love the Clintons. Hillary is doing a good job of pumping up Obama, but she is still sounds like she is still campaigning for herself. In some instances, she sounds like she is still out there stumping for herself. She really needs to realize that she lost. Notice Bill's smile and cheering when she mentioned how good the economy was during his term, but he immediately sat down when she said the Obama could bring the country back to Clinton's days. He is gonna have a stroke !!!

  20. Yay Hillary!

    This party will UNITE!!

    Hillary brought it home like NO ONE else could!

    I love Hillary! I will be a soldier for Hillary and vote AGAINST McCain.

    (I loved the 'twin cities' joke. awesome!!!!!)

    She can dish out the digs on McCain like I've never seen before. Solid hits delivered expertly with a smile and a twinkle in her eye. It's great! She is a wonderful speaker.

    I don't care...the best chance Hillary has to be President is to go against McCain in 4 years vs take over from Obama in 8. She will be too old in 8 years, but not in 4...McCain must win now if Hillary has ANY chance to be Prez!!!

    If John McCain offered Hillary the vice presidency, she would take it in a heartbeat, with Bill fully supporting her. The Clintons are dedicated to themselves. The Democratic Party is only a vehicle to that end.
