“No way, no how, no McCain”

That is probably one of the most memorable lines from the speech given Tuesday night by Senator Hillary Clinton.

Clinton received a standing ovation and her speech was interrupted several times by applause.

She looked and sounded sincere, but democrats won’t know the full strength of  her speech until the roll call vote is taken at the convention on Wednesday.

Clinton says she will release her delegates in a show of  unity and support for Senator Barack Obama.

But, some groups are urging Clinton Delegates to stand firm and fulfill their promise to nominate her to be the democratic party nominee for president.

Groups like PUMA (which 2 on the Beat blogged about last week) and Just Say No to Unity, argue that if all Clinton delegates cast their vote  according to their pledge, then Obama and Clinton would be tied and the Super Delegates would have to weigh in and decide the party’s candidate.

Most political experts believe that Clinton delegates will fight to the bitter end, but the majority will support Obama  for president.
