In a prime time address, the former first lady added, "we don'thave a moment to lose or a vote to spare."
The packed convention floor became a sea of white "Hillary"signs as the New York senator strode to the podium, and thousandsof Democrats cheered as she took a pre-speech sip of water.
While her prepared remarks included a full-throated endorsementof Obama, she did not indicate whether she would have her nameplaced in nomination or seek a formal roll call of the states whenthe nomination is awarded by delegates on Wednesday night.
Calling herself a "proud supporter of Barack Obama, shedismissed Republican John McCain with a few choice words.
"No way. No how. No McCain," she said as the hall erupted incheers.
"We don't need four more years ... of the last eight years,"she added.
Like other failed candidates at conventions past, Clintonrecalled her own quest for the White House.

"You allowed me to become part of your lives, and you becamepart of mine."
