Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton [Images] has pledged her full support to Barack Obama [Images], who created history be becoming the first African American President of the United States on Tuesday.
Clinton, who had waged a bitter and long campaign against Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, said in a statement, "Tonight, we are celebrating an historic victory for the American people. This was a long and hard fought campaign but the result was well worth the wait.
Together, under the leadership of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and a Democratic Congress, we will chart a better course to build a new economy and rebuild our leadership in the world. And I look forward to doing all that I can to support President Obama and Vice President Biden in the difficult work that lies ahead.
For too long, middle class families in this country have felt invisible, struggling alone as wages stagnate, jobs disappear, and the costs of daily life climb upward. In quiet, solitary acts of citizenship, American voters gave voice to their hopes and their values, voted for change, and refused to be invisible any longer."
