A quick take on Hillary's speech

In her speech at tonight's conventions, Senator Hillary Clinton asked the questions that may very well convince her supporters to join the Obama camp: "I want you to ask yourselves: Were you in this campaign just for me? Or were you in it for that young Marine and others like him? Were you in it for that mom struggling with cancer while raising her kids? Were you in it for that boy and his mom surviving on the minimum wage? Were you in it for all the people in this country who feel invisible?" This is an attempt to unify all the Democrats behind Obama. Will it work? Is Hillary eyeing a Presidential run in 2012 or 2016 already? Should Obama have chosen her as his Vice-Presidential candidate?
