Aside from that, let me say I thought it was extremely rude and immature for Hillary to leave all her supporters standing around all night and not say a word until this morning. At least she could have said something. I have two friends that were there and waited until almost 3am before leaving. Totally not cool. Really shows what mattered to her most...
Yeah, while that was not cool, it's somewhat understandable. She's an old lady, she's been 24-7 on the campaign trail for 1.5 years. She was exhausted, and after polls showed her with a healthy lead watching her firewall crumble one by one as the night progressed must have been extremely traumatic. Rumor is that she was in shock.
From what I was told, they kept telling the people gathered there that someone would be coming out 'shortly' to say a few words. At almost the same time, they were telling the press that they wouldn't be saying anything for the rest of the night. If Hillary wasn't able to do it, someone from the campaign could have at least got up there and told them something. (Hell, give Bill his sax and push him out there!) That's like having a big wedding, inviting everyone you know and then eloping. Very inconsiderate, especially to people that had volunteered a ton of their own time to the campaign.
