HillaryClinton.com goes Obama-centric

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/06/07/art.hrcboweb0607.hrc.jpg caption="Sen. Clinton's campaign Web site took on a new look Saturday as she endorsed Sen. Barack Obama."]
WASHINGTON (CNN) – In concert with her speech Saturday, the banner image across Hillary Clinton’s Web site flipped to “Support Sen. Obama today.”

The site – which has been a central part of Clinton’s fund-raising efforts and a signature part of her speeches – now asks supporters get behind Sen. Barack Obama and “together we can write the next chapter in America’s story.” The box alongside the email sign-up, however, still solicits contributions to her campaign.

Clinton has suspended her presidential campaign. By suspending instead of dropping out, she technically remains a candidate, entitled to keep statewide pledged delegates and district-level delegates.

A video message on the site, posted four days ago, thanks her supporters, telling them: “I could not have made this part of the journey without you,” but makes no mention of the presidential nominee.

Update: Sen. Obama has returned the favor online.  The Obama campaign's Web site has been altered to allow visitors to leave messages of thanks for Sen. Clinton.  Click here to see this new feature on the Obama site.

  2. Tell the truth

I wanted to talk about some issues like health care, war in Irag, housing market, social securtiy, bush taxes cuts, pro lofe or pro choice. Please can someone tell me how you supported Hilliary but now support McCain. I will post this messeage everyday until I get a real answer. Please just tell the truth.

    On the CNN telecast today, it was mentioned that Barack Obama was observed leaving his home in "golf cothes" as the Clinton speech was about to begin. Where did he watch the speech? Surely not on the golf course?

    Hope someone can clarify for me . . .

    I contributed to Hillary, I will not contribute to Obama or the DNC. I will write Hillary Clinton on my ballot in November.

    Go Obama! Clintons are about themselves. They even took 4days to recognize your win. Other people can rule the country.
    No more dynasties, no more dictatorship the people have spoken!

    These dynasties taking our kids to war and theirs don't join the military. I had enough with Bush to give another dynasty my vote. Go Obama my kids loves you!

    I'm going back MSNBC. This site is getting to divisive. Some of these comments on these articles are pitting Obama supporters against Clinton supporters. "Obama golfing" news about Hillary's web site. Shame on you CNN!!!

    I donated to Hillary after her defeat, but there is no way I will donate to Obama or the DNC

    I have learned that there are many Republicans posing as angry Clinton supporters trying to keep us divided. Do not believe it. There are some Repubs who are desparate and will try anything because they know they are toast this year. They think we are dumb enough to vote McCain in because of their bogus posts. Democrats will be united in November! Get ready for defeat McCain, Bush, Cheney and the politics of the past! It is going to happen. Accept it now or later, it really doesn't matter.

    Why the web show Hillary for president and support Obama...Anybody have the answer..

    What do Clinton and McCain have in common... NOTHING!

    Why would people be so dumb as to say they would support the complete oposite?

    Anyone who is a Democrat would never support Bush/McCain

    I'm just wondering if people are really that self centered?

    Why is Obama not leading McCain in the polls?????

    Don't people know McCain is just 4 more years of Bush?

    Must be a problem somewhere. Yes there is!!!!!

    With or without Hillary on the ticket as VP, I will NEVER vote for Obama. I can not support a man who has little or no experience to validate being the leader of the most powerful country in the world. It would be like putting the mailroom clerk in the CEO position of a major corporation.

    With much regret my vote will go to McCain this fall! The siver lining in that will be when McCain beats Obama, and he will, then America will have to put up with 4 more years of bad Republican policy and by then they will embrace Hillary as the true beacon of hope for America!!!

    Good for HER.

    But the haters already lost my vote.

    I will not fall in line behind the lying, hypocrit who stole the nomination.

  20. Obama All The Way

    That's gotta kill HRC supporters. You guys have to realize that HRC suspended her campaign ONLY because she needs to continue to raise money to pay off her $20-$30 million debt. If she totally quit, she'd be stuck with the debt.

    It's a politically intelligent move. If her debt were smaller like others who have dropped out, then she would have done the same as they did.

    It was heartbreaking to watch Hillary give her speech today, but what continues to bother me is how Obama's supporters continue to disrespect her. The bloggers continue to say divisive things about her that are very unhelpful for her supporters to now try to come aboard. I was proud of what Hillary did today, let us see if Obama can get his supporters to show Hillary the respect that she deserves. I don't think it would be fair if her supporters have to go to support him when his supporters are not willing to show her the support and respect that she deserves for running her historical and "Remarkable" race.

    Do you all know how long it takes to change and or update a website as involved as Hillary's?...it takes days and days....to make sure no one part of the website is down while they work on another... I am sure over the coming days the website will incur more changes as we move forward...

    So give her website crew some time to recreate what took them months to make...

    Obama 08'
    Democrats 08'
    Thankyou Hillary!

  23. Obama made this bed

    Go Hill.

    Power to you.

    My vote for you... will never go to Obama.

    They were brutal and cruel to You.

    They drove you from this race by pummeling you with hatred and by manipulating the press.

    Some of us don't buy into propaganda.

    This is not about Hillary, it is about our country.

    May be we can say this is when we started solving our problems and listening to American people when we get rid of these people who are self serving. She can not even acknowledge Obama's win till after 4days and her people still follow her after misleading them she is winning while the fact is that she lost long time ago after Wisconsin primary? Hillary, take bill and chelsea home!
