Clinton Bows Out

Hillary Rodham Clinton ended her historic campaign for the presidency on Saturday and told supporters to unite behind rival Barack Obama.

The former first lady, who as recently as Tuesday declared herself the strongest candidate, gave the Senetor from Illinois an unqualified endorsement and pivoted from her role as determined foe to absolute ally.

“Today as I suspend my campaign, I congratulate him on the victory he has won and the extraordinary race he has run. I endorse him and throw my full support behind him and I ask of you to join me in working as hard for Barack Obama as you have for me,” the New York senator said in a 28-minute address to her supporters at Washington's National Building Museum.
