Clinton preaches unity at her first convention gig

DENVER (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton preached unity Monday in her first appearance at the Democratic National Convention.

Her first stop in Denver was a breakfast meeting for New York Democrats, where supporters waved signs declaring that "Hillary Made History."

Clinton was quick to put Republican John McCain in her sights, saying the GOP nominee was running ads using her words to try to divide the Democrats.

Clinton's response: "I'm Hillary Clinton, and I do not approve that message."

Clinton tried to acknowledge the hard feelings of the primary season while encouraging everyone to move past them.

"We were not all on the same side as Democrats, but we are now," she said. "We are united and we are together and we are determined."
