Clinton: Americans 'refused to be invisible'

Statement of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008

Tonight, we are celebrating an historic victory for the American people. This was a long and hard fought campaign but the result was well worth the wait.

Together, under the leadership of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and a Democratic Congress, we will chart a better course to build a new economy and rebuild our leadership in the world. And I look forward to doing all that I can to support President Obama and Vice President Biden in the difficult work that lies ahead.

For too long, middle class families in this country have felt invisible, struggling alone as wages stagnate, jobs disappear, and the costs of daily life climb upward. In quiet, solitary acts of citizenship, American voters gave voice to their hopes and their values, voted for change, and refused to be invisible any longer.

    Thank you Hillary for your work throughout the years in service to the Democratic Party. And though it might not have mattered to the DNC establishment who introduced Obama in 2004 and helped to get him in to the Senate and now into the White House, it matters that you worked in PA and FL to help to get those two states BLUE. Thank you to former President Bill Clinton as well.

    Congratulations President-elect Obama and Vice-President-elect Biden. The eyes of TX, and the world are will be watching...
