- Yes we can. Change. Hope. The crowd of 480,000 Obama supporters cheered uncontrollably as Senator Hillary Clinton started her much-anticipated speech with these now infamous campaign slogans.
She also affirmed her unwavering support for President-elect Obama, and pledged to serve her nation with dignity and honor as the next Secretary of State. "I promise you that we will take back this country, and to all of the naysayers out there, I harbor no ill feelings towards my former opponent - despite his lack of experience and substance." Obama organized the rally for Clinton to publicly acknowledge her acceptance of the position.
Nearly six minutes into her speech, the crowd began to yawn and to stare at their watches - waiting for her speech to come to an end. Noticing their boredom, Sen. Clinton immediately screamed, "Yes we can! Change! Hope!" This sent the entire rally into a state of ecstatic hysteria. And as she concluded, she led the boisterous rally with four Nazi salutes - chanting "Sieg Hiel!" President-elect Obama acknowledged the crowd's enthusiasm, and saluted back to them.
After the rally, Obama was interviewed by Brian Sussman, distinguished broadcaster and journalist. Sussman asked," Why did you pick Hillary as your Secretary of State, given that she and her husband never forgive and never forget?" Obama replied, "A very wise man once told me to keep your friends close to you, and you enemies even closer."
