Clinton Supporters in Pa. Graceful in Defeat


Jackson, Peter, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


CAMP HILL, Pa. -- As Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton shut down her presidential campaign Saturday, her Pennsylvania delegates gracefully played their part in the Democratic unity pageant and vowed to work hard for her former opponent, Sen. Barack Obama, in the general-election campaign.

"At the end of the day, I'm a Democrat," Clinton delegate Gail McDermott of Mechanicsburg said as the Democratic State Committee fleshed out the state's delegation to the national nominating convention in August. "The most important thing is that we end George Bush's policies and the Iraq war."

Angie Gialloreto, a Clinton delegate from Pittsburgh, held out hope that Obama will choose Clinton as his running mate, but she said his choice won't affect her commitment to campaign for the Illinois senator.

"The people spoke," Gialloreto said. "As Democrats we believe in fair fights and party unity."

Party unity was the theme of the state committee's two-day meeting at a hotel in this borough across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the state capital.

Clinton, who came closer to winning a presidential nomination than any woman before her, won Pennsylvania's April 22 primary by a 10-point margin. Obama, who is seeking to become the first black president, accrued enough delegates to capture the nomination on Tuesday.

On Friday night, Gov. Ed Rendell -- the New York senator's most visible supporter in the state -- urged his fellow Clinton loyalists on the state committee to join him in setting an example by rallying behind Obama.
