|Well, did you hear the news?|
Today I want to offer my congratulations to Hillary Clinton for effectively clinching the Democratic Nomination last night, becoming the first woman to do so for a major US political party.
And, because it's been a contentious primary, I'd also like to take a moment to give major kudos to Clinton for her genius political strategy called earning more votes than her opponent. Indeed, by every measure - popular vote, pledged delegates, super delegates, states won - she has beaten Bernie Sanders.
I celebrate this achievement unconditionally and without apology.
