Friday, June 13, 2008It’s time to put a Democrat back in the White House! We’ve all given so much to our respective candidates over the past months and now it is time to do all we can, in the words of Hillary Clinton, to “elect Barack Obama the next President of the United States.”
This has been a tough week for Hillary supporters. Eighteen million of us across America and around the globe worked so hard for her and never gave up on her candidacy or the issues she has fought for her entire life. Thank you to all her supporters within Democrats Abroad who worked so hard in trying times.
We will vote for Barack Obama and we will do all we can to see him elected as the next President of the United States. For some of her supporters, it will take some time to come around and respect from early Obama supporters will go a long way to help. We come at his candidacy from a very different place from his early supporters. We are supporting him because we care deeply about the issues and on the issues they agree on virtually everything of substance.
Over the coming months, I will continue to do all I can to get out the vote from abroad – letting every American I find know they have the right to vote, their vote gets counted, their vote can make the difference, and all they have to do is go to www.VoteFromAbroad.org. I also will be in close contact with the fabulous Hillary supporters I have gotten to know over the past year and help them through this difficult time and remind them why they were supporting Hillary and why for those very reasons they should now support Barack Obama. I am here as a resource to the Obama campaign and to all of you to help in outreach to Hillary supporters, both those who have already enthusiastically embraced Barack Obama’s candidacy and those who are still coming around more slowly.
Together we can take back the White House and see a larger Democratic majority in the House and Senate. Thank you for all you are doing!
All the best, Margo Miller
