This evening, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will address the Democratic National Convention in a speech that many hope will unite her supporters with those of presumptive presidential nominee Barack Obama.

Republican candidate John McCain used Clinton's earlier criticism of Obama in an attack ad and Rudy Giuliani said Obama should have chosen Clinton instead of Joe Biden, attempts to drive Clinton supporters to the Republican side. Yesterday morning, Clinton told the New York delegation, "I understand that the McCain campaign is running ads trying to divide us, and let me state what I think about their tactics and these ads: I'm Hillary Clinton and I do not approve that message," and emphasized the party's unity.

However, last night, Newsweek's Howard Fineman suggested on MSNBC the tension between Clinton and Obama was "real." And today, former president Bill Clinton told an audience in Denver, "Suppose you're a voter, and you've got candidate X and candidate Y. Candidate X agrees with you on everything, but you don't think that candidate can deliver on anything at all. Candidate Y you agree with on about half the issues, but he can deliver. Which candidate are you going to vote for?" The Hill reports that Clinton then said, after a paused, "This has nothing to do with what's going on now."

Senator Clinton will be introduced by her daughter Chelsea. AMNY wonders if the former First Daughter has a future in politics.
