U.S. democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is calling on her
supporters to back nominee Barack Obama ahead of the party's national
Senator Clinton urged party unity Monday in remarks to delegates from her home
state of New York. Clinton made her comments in Denver, Colorado, where the
party's national convention is taking place.
Resentment among many Clinton backers still remains coming into the convention,
although the U.S. senator and former first lady has said she will release her
delegates in a gesture of unity.
A recent survey of Clinton's supporters shows one third plan to vote for either
John McCain or a third-party candidate -- rather than for Senator Obama.
Senator Obama's wife, Michelle, will deliver Monday evening's keynote address,
formally introducing her husband to the nation.
