Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) was a Hillary Clinton supporter during the primaries. But now, Baldwin says the party must be united behind Barack Obama. Baldwin addressed Wisconsin delegates Monday during the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO.
The Wisconsin Democrat says electing Obama to the presidency is the best way to achieve the goals set by the party, many of which were thwarted by the Bush White House. She says key issues, such as re-deploying troops from Iraq and funding for stem cell research, were all vetoed by President Bush. She says Congress lacks the super majority needed to overturn those vetoes.
Baldwin says Obama has brought a message of hope to the nation, and now it's up to Democrats to put that message into action.
Baldwin will address the entire convention later today.
