Hillary Clinton Releases Her Delegates

Her name and Obama’s will be in the roll call vote, meaning that Clinton’s delegates will be able to vote for whomever they choose. Her words to them:

“I come here today to release you as my delegates…. What that means is that both Senator Obama’s name and mine will be put into nomination this afternoon. I have spoken to many of you who have expressed your questions about what you should do. Many of you feel a responsibility to represent your voters. Others of you want the chance to vote what’s in your heart. Still others will be voting for Senator Obama because they want to demonstrate their commitment to the party and the nominee. So I am not telling you what to do.”

“I signed my ballot this morning for Senator Obama.”

“What is important to come out of today is that we nominate Senator Barack Obama and Joe Biden for the president and vice president of the United States.”

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
