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.

    I am an Obama supporter, but I am so glad to have HRC and all her supporters now backing Obama. She will go down in history as the first woman to run for president of the usa, and I am proud of her as a woman. She and Obama have such similar views, it should not be hard for the the transition. Obama is fortunate to have an excellent campaign going, whilst HRC's let her down in so many ways. I am hoping to see her be Sec. of health when he wins, because this time around, she WILL get the universal health insurance. Go Obama. Go democrats. thank you, HRC, for uniting us at last.

    how can hillary say she stands behind obama, and yet instead of dropping out she has only suspended her campaign. That does not show true friendship as she professed.

    AND the response on the site is anger! THIS site was for her supporters. we are angry about the banner, can't start tracking how many people "fall in line" fast enough? Well the answer is most people are done with the DNC, many people on the site, including myself have adopted a new mentality, We LOVE HILLARY, but will not be sheep. Voting McCain sends the meesage to the DNC we will be heard or we will vote against you!!! The new word of the day "RAIN MCCAIN!!!" Get over that, unite that, ignore our votes now! AND AS FOR CONTRIBUTING TO BO, HELL NO!! We will be heard and it will lead us to another 4 years of republicans we don't agree with, but at least we will count!!! They should have thought about it before teling 18 milion people that delegates count more than them!

    It would be nice if CNN (a/k/a Clinton News Network) followed her example.

    So what if Obama "left his house earlier today with golf clubs" ? He's not allowed to play golf? Maybe he watched the speech on the tv set at the golf course. Maybe he went to a colleague's house with his clubs to watch the speech then play golf, or vice versa. MAYBE HE READ IT NUMEROUS TIMES PRIOR TO TODAY, AND DID NOT NEED TO WATCH IT AGAIN. He clearly knew what she said, since he responded to it.

    Why, CNN, must you inflame things with irrelevant innuendo?

    I can not reward their publicly raping you, by now giving them my vote.

    That goes against what I stand for and believe in.

    That goes against the ideals of justice and equality for all.

    Thank you Senator Clinton for your endorsement. Thank you Clinton Supporters for making this historical primary season more than just a footnote.

    Now is the time to pull together for the good of the country. We are a competitve nation, and things were said on both sides that were hurtful... but it is time to set aside our, the voter, hurt feelings and concentrate on what is the best for the country.

  7. still for Hill

    My belief in democracy and justice.

    My values of fair play and equality.

    My opposition to hate and denigration...

    All these things guide me NOT to vote for Obama.

    Thank you for your support Senator Clinton!
    Now it is time for the Democrats to UNITE and take back the White House back from the Republicans!

    Hillary :
    Make sure you are just not using Obama's name on your websit so you can take his contributions. Because your site says" Support
    Senator Obama today, sign up now ? – for what?
    If you want to write a chapter in your future book ( I am sure you will write one) is fine, but don't take his share of people's contributions.

    Hi, I wonder why people call her a fighter.
    I call her a despote!
    Hopefully she never will be the president of the USA –
    nor a member of an US-Government.

    Clinton for Sec of State! Or Sec. of Health and Human Services.

    My beef is not with Hillary. She could talk herself blue in the face on supporting Obama yet those staunch diehard Clintonites will never see the light. It is sad that we have a chance to make some change. With our economy in shambles,oil prices and unemployment at all time highs, a war spiraling out of control... there are those that continue to get bent and claim inexperience or an election was stolen. You are not seeing the big picture. It is time to stop the "it's about me" attitude that is wrong with this country. Put aside your selfish agenda and unite as one. If you can wake up in the morning and say this country is better off than anytime in our history, that everyone has a job, good healthcare, our children can read and write, you enjoy paying $4 for gallon of gas and our troops are dying for a worthy cause, then John" McPain" is your candidate. It's time to roll up our sleeves and get with a candidate who can and will bring change. Obama represents that hope. Progress is happening and you can move forward or get out the way.

  15. too much hate

    I am still for justice and democracy and fair play.

    They gang banged the best candidate to install an Obama.

    So I must say, no thank-you.... what message would it send if after all the hate and demonizing, and insults hurled,.... I now reward the evildoers with my vote?

    No to DEMS. No to DNC. No to Obama.

    June 7, 2008 03:19 pm at 3:19 pm |

    I am a devout democrat and a Hillary supporter. I respect her but will NOT support Obama. His use of reverse racism was reprehensible and not what I support.

    First need to know if he's going to help her pay off her campaign debt.

    June 7, 2008 03:22 pm at 3:22 pm |
  19. Damian

    Just to elaborate, by remaining a candidate she will be able to pay off some of her campaign debt. That is the reason she suspended her campaign as oppose to conceding.

    Love you Hill, but this independent knows what happened in this campaign. I will not vote for him.

    Doing you a favor and standing by yours and my convictions that you were the best choice.

  25. party loyalty?

    I will always love you Hill... and I will always vote for YOU.

    But I will never vote for they that beat and trashed and mocked you.

    I will not say okay to this travesty of justice.

    Obama is no longer an option for me.

    The DEMS can NOT be allowed to do this to future candidates.

    This is about values and principles- not about party loyalty.
