President Obama & Michelle Obama, Bill & Chelsea Clinton Join HILLARY CLINTON for "The Night Before GOTV Rally" in Philadelphia's Historic Independence Mall

By Gloria Dulan-Wilson

Hello All:


Well, it's a wrap!!! 
Last night in Philadelphia's Independence Mall, Hillary Clinton wound up her campaign with perhaps the biggest rally ever - Calling it "THE NIGHT BEFORE ,"  the event was designed to rally the constituents of perhaps the most important and pivotal of the swing states, to get out and vote en masse for HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT. 

And if the turn out and enthusiasm are any indication, she has nothing to worry about Pennsylvania's largest voting bloc.

Not wanting to miss out on this great moment in history, yours truly stood in line with at least 5,000 other media personnel to get in and provide coverage. This was perhaps the greatest sacrifice I'll ever make for my love of media and writing and keeping you informed - because it was literally a grueling one and a half hours slow go process getting from the entry to the press section. The hold up was the fact that they only one secret service person on board personally inspecting each and every member of the press coming through - One!!! I think I might have been the 3000th person to go through this process - Yikes!!  But, you have to give the Secret Service credit - no one was going to go through who might  in some way be a threat to the President, First Lady and Former President and Former First Lady cum Next President of the US.  However, had they had Leah Daughtry coordinating the set up and search by the Secret Service, there would have been at least three check points and the process would have gone a lot smoother and faster - a recommendation I'm making early for the upcoming inauguration.

We stood in line an hour and a half to go through Secret Service But it was worth it!

But, it was well worth it - *painful knees and all  (see link at the bottom of this article for more information)- to finally reach the press pit and hear the rousing speech delivered by Bruce Springsteen (Mr. Born In the USA himself), endorsing HILLARY CLINTON, and making the clear distinction between her and T-Rump.

With more than 40,000 turning out (and that's not counting the 5,000+ members of the press from all over the world - China, Japan, France, Germany, England, Israel, Africa, the Caribbean, Los Angeles, New York, Maryland, DC, and of course Philadelphia) - all there to be a witness to, and a part of history.

For those who have never been there, Independence Mall is not a shopping Mall, but the location of the Historic Liberty Bell, the Signing of the Declaration of Independence, the location of the Slave Museum and the African American History Museum, and so many more enshrined documents of the birth of the USA.

It was even more worth while to hear the First Lady of the United States refer to her hubby as the Love of Her Life, as she introduced him to speak before the crowd for the last time as the President of the US.

In somewhat of a tag-team fashion, with Chelsea Clinton being the first speaker after Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi's performances, she introduce her father, who then introduced First Lady Michelle Obama, who introduced President Obama, who finally introduced HILLARY CLINTON who gave the final wrap up to being Stronger Together - the theme of her campaign.

I have provided excerpts from the first three speeches, and, for the most part, the entire transcript of President Obama and HILLARY CLINTON's speeches.  This is a great moment in History.  None of us should make any mistake about the significant role we each play in getting to this day:  


It is so exciting to see and hear and feel so much enthusiasm this evening. I am so fiercely, ridiculously proud of my mom. And I am unapologetically biased towards her. And I cannot wait to cast my vote for her tomorrow. And I like to think I’m the most excited person here, but my dad might be even a little bit more excited than I am. So, just from the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much. And now it is my great honor to introduce my dad, President Bill Clinton.”


Thank you. First of all, you just saw one of the reasons you should support Hillary for president. I am so proud of our daughter. I am grateful for her. I am grateful for all of you who have worked for her from the beginning to today. I’m grateful to all of you. But I want you to take just one minute to think of where we are and what it means. This country began here, right here, with people who pledged their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor to form a more perfect –”UNION (audience finished his sentence with an enthusiastic response).

In other words, we’re stronger together. And I have watched in this campaign as our candidate lived the campaign as she has lived her life, dedicated to making changes for other people, proving that, no matter what came along and no matter what they hit her with, no matter what obstacles were in the road, she would keep her eyes on other people, on the futures that our children, our grandchildren deserve, on how we could move forward together. And, no matter what happened, she said, ‘We’re stronger together.’ That means answers are better than anger. Empowerment is better than resentment. Working together is better than fighting all of the time. And it’s way better to lift somebody up than put people down.

And tomorrow the American people are going to be given a chance one more time to form a more perfect union. It will be – because we’re losing our great president to term limits, it will be a change election. And we have to decide, are we going to change forward together or backward? I think that all of us owe a great debt of gratitude to the President, to the First Lady, to the administration, to Barack Obama.

He then introduced First Lady, Michelle Obama as “the finest servant/ supporter any candidate for president ever had, Michelle Obama, our First Lady.”

“Oh, my goodness. Wow!!! Well, thank you so much. Oh, my goodness. First of all, I want to thank Bill for that generous introduction. And thank you, Philadelphia. Look at you. Wow!! What an amazing crowd. What an amazing night. This is truly an emotional moment for me for so many reasons. First, we are one day away from once again making history.

Tomorrow, we have the chance to elect someone who is singularly qualified to be our President, our friend HILLARY CLINTON. She is a phenomenal woman who has devoted her life to helping others – kids in crumbling schools, families struggling to get by, women who need a voice. And let me tell you, when the going gets tough, Hillary is the person we want on our side because she never gives up. She never quits. She refuses to ever be knocked down, pushed around, or counted out. And on top of all that, she is an outstanding mother, a loving and loyal wife, a bold and brilliant woman who is an inspiration to me and to millions across this country. And in just a few hours, we have the power to make her our next President. “

The First Lady went on to say, “ I’m also emotional because in many ways speaking here tonight is perhaps the last and most important thing that I can do for my country as First Lady. And let me just take a moment to thank you, to thank the people of this country for giving our family the extraordinary honor of serving as your First Family. Thank you for your love. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for welcoming us into your communities with open hearts, for giving us a chance whether you agreed with our politics or not. 

She stated, “Our actions are a reflection of what behavior we hope our children will emulate. And we believe that our responsibility to you and to this country does not end when we leave the White House. That’s why Barack and I have been working so hard in this election, because we believe that we have a duty to ensure that this country is handed over to a leader that we all can trust – a leader who takes this job seriously, someone who is truly ready to be Commander-in-Chief on day one. 

We deserve a leader who will ensure that our daughters are safe and respected and that our sons understand that truly strong men are compassionate and kind - a leader who sees the dignity and humanity in all of us and who will encourage us to see the better angels in one another - a leader who sees our diversity not as a threat but as a blessing – a leader who sees us not as rich or poor but as hard-working folks doing the best we can with what we got, a leader who sees us not as Democrats and Republicans but as neighbors and friends who all love this country, who sees us not just as Black or white, immigrant or native-born, but as brothers and sisters who are all infinitely worth, all an important part of this great American story. 

And I am here tonight because I believe with all my heart and soul that Hillary Clinton is that leader – and we need to (MUST !!- gdw) do everything we can to get her elected President of the United States. And here’s the beauty of it all, this election is on us. It is in our hands. If we get out and vote tomorrow, Hillary Clinton will win. But if we stay home or we play around with the protest vote, then Hillary’s opponent will win, period, end of story.

Look, it is important to understand that presidential elections are breathtakingly close. They are decided by just 5, 10, 15 votes per precinct. So by just taking a few minutes out of your day tomorrow to cast your vote and bringing your friends and family with you, each of you has the power to swing an entire precinct for Hillary. And if we swing enough precincts, we will win the state, we will win this election, and we will continue the progress that we have all made together these past eight years. We will do this. That is the power that you have.

Tomorrow, with your vote, you can stand up to those who seek to divide us make us afraid. You can declare with one voice that we are always stronger together. Tomorrow, with your vote, you can say that this country has always been great, that it is the greatest nation on Earth, a country where a girl like me from the south side of Chicago, whose great-great-grandfather was a slave, can go to the finest universities on Earth; a country where the biracial son of a single mother from Hawaii, and the son of a single mother from Hope, Arkansas can both make it to the White House!

Where a passionate, outspoken young woman determined to do all the good she can, can go on to break the highest, hardest glass ceiling and become our President. That is the power you have and the history you can make tomorrow but only if we get out and vote for HILLARY CLINTON

So can we count on you? Can Hillary count on you? We’ve got to get this done. You’ve got to get out and vote. We can make this happen.

So I know have the honor of introducing my husband to the stage. It’s my chance – perhaps the last chance I have to introduce him as President of the United States. So I just want to take a moment to publicly say how proud I am of all that he has done for this country. I am proud, not just of what he has done, but how he has done it - getting the job done in the face of unimaginable challenges – always going high when they go low; showing us all what intelligence, dignity, and grace really look like! And never, ever compromising his values or beliefs. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the Love of My Life, the President of the United States, BARACK OBAMA!!!”

Hello, Philadelphia. Are you fired up? Are you ready to go? 

Thank you, Michelle Obama, for being my partner, my love, my rock, and an amazing First Lady.

Eight years ago, I asked all of you to join me on an unlikely journey. We set out, not just to change programs or policies, but to rebuild an economy where everyone had a chance to succeed, to reform Washington so that your voices would be more powerful than entrenched lobbyists.

We set out to keep America safe and strong, not just with the might of our arms and the extraordinary valor of our troops, but with the power of our ideals, to shape a changing America so that everybody belongs and everybody has a part, everybody has a responsibility.

Now, we didn’t know when we began that America would fall into the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes, but in the face of great challenges, in the face of entrenched interests, in the face of - in some cases - unprecedented obstruction and a cynical Washington, we stayed with it. The American people stayed with it. And because of your resilience, because of your strength, because of your faith, we turned “Yes, we can” into “Yes, we did!!”

Look at the road we’ve traveled. We’ve seen America turn recession into recovery. Our businesses create fifteen-and-a-half million new jobs, putting more people back to work than all the other advanced economies combined. A resurgent auto industry has led the fastest manufacturing growth since another Clinton was president. Incomes are rising, poverty is falling, 20 million more Americans have health insurance. We’ve doubled production of renewable energy, become the world leader in fighting climate change. Marriage equality is finally a reality from coast to coast. We brought home more of our men and women in uniform; took out Osama bin Laden – and almost every country on earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago.  

In fact, because Bill Clinton is here, I did some math - a little arithmetic. Under the last two REPUGLYCON (Republican) presidents, job growth was basically flat, deficits went up. Over our two Democratic presidencies, jobs went up by more than 30 million, deficits went down, millions more Americans gained health insurance. So yes, with Democrats in charge, America is stronger!! Those are just the facts!!

With just one more day to go, we now have the chance to elect a 45th president who will build on our progress – who will finish the job, who already has the respect of leaders around the world and the people they serve; who is smart and who is steady and who is tested. Someone who comes to this office as well prepared as anyone who has ever run - more than me; more than Bill!

The next president of the United States, HILLARY CLINTON.

Now, I know it’s been a long campaign. There’s been a lot of noise and a lot of distraction. At times it’s felt more like a reality show, or even a parody. But tomorrow!!–Tomorrow, Philadelphia!! The choice you face when you step into that voting booth could not be clearer and could not be more serious. On the economy, Donald Trump is uniquely unqualified to be our chief executive. That’s why most CEOs and economists don’t support him. He would trigger a reckless trade war that costs jobs, strip 20 million Americans of their health insurance, roll back the new rules designed to check Wall Street recklessness and protect consumers, and would roll back the regulations we put in place to preserve this planet for our kids.

On foreign policy, Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be commander-in-chief. Don’t take my word for it; listen to the Republicans who’ve refused to support him. He lacks a basic understanding of the world, justifies torture, suggests abandoning our allies. Over the weekend, his campaign took away is Twitter account – because he’s erratic. If his closest advisors don’t trust him to tweet, why would any of us trust him with the nuclear codes?

More than his policies or his plans, though, throughout his campaign Donald Trump has shown utter contempt for the values that make this nation great. Anyone who sees women as objects, minorities and immigrants as inferior, other faiths as presumptively un-American, cannot lead this diverse, dynamic, bighearted country that we love. And so all of this should give you reason enough to vote tomorrow. But you don’t just have to vote against someone, you have somebody extraordinary to vote for. Philadelphia, you’ve got someone outstanding to vote for in HILLARY CLINTON.  

I’ll be honest, I have had to bite my tongue after a lot of the nonsense I’ve heard people say about Hillary in this election. I can only imagine what Bill and Chelsea have been going through. The vicious, crazy attacks, the double standards applied to her, they’re like nothing we’ve ever seen before. And what makes it worse is that most of the people saying this stuff, they don’t really believe it - they know better. Don’t forget, when Hillary was a senator, when she was my Secretary of State, she was really popular. People saw how effective she was, how she crossed party lines to get things done. 

HILLARY RALLY - From the side lines

Before she announced her candidacy for president, Republican leaders described her, and I’m quoting now, asvery impressive, someone who does a magnificent job, one of the most effective secretaries of state.Well, they were right then. I agreed with Republicans then. Hillary did a great job for America. She’s a big reason why we’re more respected around the world.”

The President went on to state that it became politically expedient for the Repuglycons to disparage HILLARY when she became a candidate – an starte “tearing her down. “And look, he continued, “when you’re subjected to unrelenting negative fire, it takes a toll.” And nobody knows that better than President Obama, who has endured eight years of the most racist, obstructionist, divisive, backwards congress in the history of the US.

But here’s the thing about Hillary. She doesn’t complain, she doesn’t buckle, she brushes it off. Like the American people, she is strong and tough and she knows that government service is not about her. It’s about you, your struggles, your dreams. Throughout her career, Hillary has followed that Methodist creed her mom taught her:Do all the good you can for all the people you can in all the ways you can for as long as you can. And she doesn’t plan on stopping now, and that’s how I know she will work her heart out for you.  

For everybody that’s still in need of a good job or a raise; for every child who needs a sturdier ladder out of poverty; for every student who needs relief from student debt; every immigrant who wants to contribute to this county they love; for every American who has not yet felt the progress of these past 8 years, she will work, and she will deliver. She won’t just tweet.  

But she will need your help, and she’ll need help in Washington. If you want Hillary to continue the progress we’ve made, you need to give her allies in the Senate like KATIE McGINTY. You cannot just stick Hillary with Republicans in Congress who are already promising even more unprecedented dysfunction in Washington. That would be hard to do, but they’re promising it! More shutdowns, more obstruction, years of hearings and investigations. You know, gridlock is not mysterious. It’s not something that happens because both sides are being equally unreasonable. It has been a stated Republican strategy since I took office. And the only way to break it is to make those with you engage in it pay a price is by electing more Democrats tomorrow.

Look at KATIE McGINTY’s opponent, Pat Toomey (the audience began to boo Toomey). President Obama responded: Don’t boo – VOTE!!–”

He supports a Republican leader who blocked that bill. And his repeated votes to give tax cuts to the wealthy, just like Donald Trump would. To block a higher minimum wage, just like Donald Trump would. To repeal the Affordable Care Act, just like Donald Trump would. We do not need a Trump-Toomey economy. We need someone who’s never forgotten her working class roots, the daughter of a restaurant hostess and a Philadelphia beat cop; somebody who went to college with the help of scholarships and student loans. KATIE McGINTY won’t just be with you part of the way, she’ll be with you all of the way, and that’s why you’ve got to vote for her!  

Pennsylvania, if you think endless gridlock will help your family, you should vote REPUGLYCON (Republican). But if you believe America can do better than that, if you care about creating jobs that families can live on and childcare they can afford; if you care about equal pay for women and a higher minimum wage for workers, you need to vote for Democrats up and down the ticket, people like HILLARY, people like KATIE McGINTY  (CANDIDATE FOR THE UNITED STATES SENATE AGAINST TOOMEY - a repuglycon)- people who will roll up their sleeves and move America forward.  

Listen. I know we live in a cynical time. And I know elections and all the negative ads tend to heighten that cynicism. Just last week a journalist asked me if I still believed the optimism I expressed that night back in Boston twelve years ago, that we were more than a collection of red and blue states, that there wasn’t a liberal America or a conservative America, a Black America or a white America. There was just a United States of America. He asked me if I still held on to the hope of 2008, if I still believed in Change. After all, he said, the country’s so divided. Hillary’s in such a close race with someone who stands in total opposition for all that you’ve ever stood for. Maybe your vision was misguided, he suggested, or at least very naive.

And it was a fair question. I had to acknowledge that I hadn’t fully counted on the obstruction we’d see when I first came into office and had to save the economy. I didn’t anticipate the way social media would magnify our divisions and muddy up facts. None of us knew then how deep the Great Recession would cut and how many people would suffer and how it would make so many people anxious about their futures and their kids’ futures even after the economy recovered.

But despite all that, I told him, the answer’s “YES,” I still believe in hope. I’m still as optimistic as ever about our future, and that’s because of you, the American people. In my visits to schools and factories, war theaters, national parks, in the letters you’ve written me, in the tears you’ve shed over a lost loved one, I have seen again and again your goodness and your strength and your heart. In 2008, you gave me a chance, a skinny guy with a funny name. And for these past eight years, I saw how hard you worked in the face of impossible odds. I saw the values you teach your children. I saw the way you treat strangers in need. I’ve seen the young men and women in uniform who meet every mission, and the military families who serve and sacrifice just as well, and the wounded warriors who never, ever quit.

You bet on me all those years ago, and I will always be grateful for the privilege you gave me to serve. But I’ll be honest with you: I’ve always had the better odds because I’ve always bet on you. And America, I’m betting on you one more time. I’m betting that tomorrow, most moms and dads across America won’t cast their vote for someone who denigrates their daughters from the highest office in the land. I’m betting that most Americans won’t vote for someone who considers minorities and immigrants and people with disabilities as inferior; who considers people who practice different faiths as objects of suspicion. I’m betting that tomorrow, true conservatives won’t cast their vote for someone with no regard for the Constitution. I’m betting that young people turn out to vote because your future is at stake.

I’m betting that men across this country will have no problem voting for the more qualified candidate who happens to be a woman. I’m betting that African Americans will vote in big numbers because this journey we’ve been on was never about the color of a President but the content of his or her character. I’m betting that America will reject a politics of resentment and blame and choose a politics that says we are stronger together. I am betting that tomorrow you will reject fear and you’ll choose hope. I’m betting that the wisdom and decency and generosity of the American people will once again win the day. And that is a bet that I have never, ever lost.

Philadelphia, in this place where our founders forged the documents of freedom. In this place where they gave us the tools to perfect our union, if you share my faith that I ask you to vote, if you want a president who shares our faith in America, who’s lived that faith in America, who will finally shatter a glass ceiling and be a president for each and every one of us!!

I am asking you to work as hard as you can this one last day to elect, my fellow Americans, this fighter, this stateswoman, this mother, this grandmother, this patriot, our next President of the United States of America, HILLARY CLINTON!”

Hello, Philadelphia! Oh, thank you. I am so grateful to be here tonight to spend this time with all of you here in this historic spot. And to all of the volunteers, the activists, the union organizers, the hard hats I see in the audience tonight, thank you for coming out for one last rally before election day tomorrow.  

And personally I am so happy to be finishing this campaign with my husband and my daughter by my side. We have been traveling across the country separately, trying to cover as much ground as possible and talk to as many voters as we can, but I’m really glad that we’re all together tonight in Philadelphia with you. And how great was it to have Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen with us?  

But in addition to all of that, what is so special for me is that we have our amazing President and First Lady with us because for nearly eight years they have served our nation with grace, strength, brilliance, and a whole lot of cool. And they have shown us again and again, as Michelle said right here in Philadelphia back at our convention, when others go low, we go high!

I am pretty sure, as they said tonight, that the best way to thank them is to do something really important tomorrow – TO VOTE– every single one of you and every person you know. Because as the President just pointed out, there is a clear choice in this election, a choice between division or unity; between an economy that works for everyone, or only those at the top; between strong, steady leadership, or a loose cannon who could put everything at risk. So make no mistakes; our core values are being tested in this election.

We know enough about my opponent; we know who he is. The real question for us is what kind of country we want to be and what kind of future we want to build for our children. I’m proud that I had the chance to serve in President Obama’s cabinet, and I am proud that I could watch the extraordinary service of our First Lady. And one thing I know is that, like them, I love America and I know you do, too.  

We love this country. We love what it stands for, not that we are blind to its flaws, its problems, its challenges, but I believe with all my heart that America’s best days are still ahead of us, if we reach for them together. We choose to believe in a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted America, an America where everyone has a place, everyone is included, everyone has a chance to live up to their own God-given potential.

There have been so many memorable moments in this election for me, and most of them revolve around the people that I have had the privilege of meeting. And last night, in Manchester, New Hampshire, I had the honor to be introduced by Khizr Khan, whose son Captain Khan was killed serving our country in Iraq. Just as he did here at our convention, Mr. Khan again reminded us of the responsibility we all share to protect and defend our Constitution. He was awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart (for bravely saving his men by throwing himself between his men and a car bomb). And what Mr. Khan said last night is something I want us all to remember: “After the many derogatory and insulting comments that we’ve heard from Donald Trump, would his son, would Captain Khan, have a place in Donald Trump’s America?” That’s an important question for all of us. Because we don’t want to shrink the vision of this great country. We want to keep expanding it so that everyone, everyone has a place to pursue your dreams, your aspirations, the future that you want to create for yourselves and everyone else.

Think about that when you go to the polls tomorrow. Think about how, throughout our history, generations of Americans, just like us, have come together to meet the tests of their time. And, yes, as President Obama said, it started right here in Philadelphia. When representatives from 13 unruly colonies came together to launch the greatest experiment the world has ever seen.

Our parents and grandparents defended that democracy. They built the great American middle-class. They marched for civil rights and voting rights, for workers’ rights and women’s rights, for LGBT rights and rights for people with disabilities. And tomorrow, we face the test of our time. What will we vote for, not just against? What will we decide is on the ballot? Because although my name and my opponent’s name may be on the ballot, every issue you care about is on that ballot. If you believe that America thrives when the middle class thrives, then you have to VOTE.  

If you believe all of our kids should have good schools and good teachers no matter what ZIP Code they live in, then you have to VOTE! If you believe college should be more affordable, you have to VOTE. If you believe we must reform our criminal justice system so everyone has respect for the law, and everyone is respected by the law, you have to VOTE. If you believe we need to protect our kids and pass common sense gun safety reforms, you have to VOTE. If you believe we must raise the minimum wage and finally guarantee equal pay for women, then you need to VOTE. Now, every time I say that last part about equal pay for women, my opponent accuses me of playing the woman’s card. Well, you know what I say: if that’s playing the woman’s card, then deal me in.

So it is not just my name or Donald Trump’s name on the ballot tomorrow. Every issue you care about is at stake. And that is just the beginning. Because we have to bridge the divides in our country. I regret deeply how angry the tone of the campaign became.” THE AUDIENCE RESPONDED: "IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT!!”

And, by the way, did any of you see those debates? Well, I stood next to Donald Trump for four and a half hours, proving conclusively I have the stamina to be President and Commander-in-Chief. The audience started chanting HILLARY! HILLARY! (so did yours truly)

But I have to say that there were so many really troubling things that my opponent has said, but probably the most horrifying was at the end of the last debate. After he has insulted everyone, more than half the population, by the way - immigrants, African Americans, Latinos, POWs, Muslims, women - he then launches an attack on our Democracy, by refusing to say whether or not he would accept the outcome of the election. Well, let’s show tomorrow there will be no question about the outcome of this election.  

But I also want you to know I will be a president for all Americans, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, not just the people who support me in this election – everyone!! Because I believe we all have a role to play in building a better, fairer, strong America; building on the progress that we have enjoyed under President Barack Obama over the last eight years. I am not going to let anybody rip away the progress we have made and turn the clock back, sending us back in time where people are free to question the foundation of our country, what our founders here did. They did not agree on everything - in case you haven’t remembered. There were lots of contentious arguments. But they saw a higher purpose. And they came together. That’s what I want us to do. And we can take the first step tomorrow. Please make a plan to vote. Pennsylvania, it all happens tomorrow.  

If you text the word PLAN, P-L-A-N, to 47246, we will walk you through where to vote, when to vote, how to get there. You can do that right now. And please tell your friends, your family, your neighbors. And you can go to iwillvote.com and get all of the information you need. Every person who lives in Philadelphia lives within five blocks of your polling place. That’s it, just five blocks. And the polls open at 7 a.m. And they close at 8 p.m. 

And, remember, if you’re in line at 8 p.m., they have to let you vote. And so we need your help. In these last hours, we need your help knocking on doors and making phone calls, helping to turn people out, maybe helping people who need assistance to get to the polls.

You can still volunteer by going to hillaryclinton.com because none of us, none of us, want to wake up on Wednesday morning and wish we had done more.

Years from today, when your kids and grandkids ask what you did in 2016, when everything was on the line, I want you to be able to say that you did VOTE. You VOTED for an inclusive, bighearted, open-minded country future that will make sure that we all keep moving together because I do believe we are stronger together; and you voted for an America where we build bridges, not walls.

And, maybe most importantly, you VOTED in great numbers to demonstrate conclusively, once and for all, that, yes, “Love trumps hate” (BECAUSE TRUMP HATES LOVE - gdw). Let’s get out and VOTE, Philadelphia, tomorrow.

Let’s make history together. Thank you, and God bless you.”  ###

As they made their way off the stage, and the audience began to depart, it dawned on me how truly important and impactful tomorrow really is.

So, my last message to all of you is this:
