Gergen: Hillary's finest hour

There will no doubt be cynics who thought that she didn't believe what she was saying, just as some cynics thought Michelle Obama last night wasn't the person who appeared on stage. But just as Michelle struck me as authentic last night, Hillary Clinton struck me as authentic tonight. And I have to add, Hillary also struck me as a class act.

Over and over again, I have heard that the Clintons only care about themselves. What we saw tonight is that Hillary Clinton cares a great deal about her party and her country, too. As both Governor Rendell and Candy Crowley have said on the air tonight, she posed exactly the right question to her supporters: were you in this just for me or were you in this for the larger causes? Isn't that the right question for Democrats?

What do you think? Would welcome your thoughts.

    Republicans are scared now as they should be. It's over! There will be a Dem in the White House this November.

    Obama/Biden 08!

    Would someone that considers themselves switching to the other team please explain to me the policies that you support in the Republican party's platform.....I'm waiting

    To think that Hillary who had record sums of money, the support of her party,'s elite, a 65/35 edge on the Black vote will somehow return to the top of the party in 2012 after the schorched earth policy in 2008 is laughable... She will receive the biggest backlash/blacklash and won't make it out of the primaries again

    There is nothing that I read here that makes me believe that those posting here are true Democrats

    If only the super / delegates had the brains and courage , this lady with great vision for the country , would be the nominee for the Democratic Party.
    Obama is a weak candidate and with his thin resume and lack of experience is not qualified to be President.
