Clinton Campaign Ends Today, Shuts Down National Museum

From the AP:

The former first lady was to formally end her historic quest to become the first female president with a speech Saturday at the at the National Building Museum in Washington. Her husband, former President Clinton, and other family members were expected to be at her side.

Aides said Clinton would be unequivocal in her praise for Obama. The two had a face-to-face meeting Thursday evening at the home of a Senate colleague, Democrat Dianne Feinstein, where they discussed the campaign to come. They spoke alone for about an hour. Both were laughing when they finished.

Clinton spent much of Friday working on her concession speech with campaign manager Maggie Williams, media adviser Mandy Grunwald and strategist Mark Penn. Aides described the process as painstaking and emotional but said there was no question Clinton would enthusiastically endorse Obama in the speech.

She also was holding a party at her Washington home Friday to thank and bid farewell to her campaign staff.

I'm sure there are bigger points out of this story to be concerned about (i.e. Will Obama make Hillary VP? Will he take on her debt?) But what strikes me, is what the heck is the National Building Museum? I can't believe I'd never heard of this place. I'm not exactly unfamiliar with Washington DC. The website says its shut down today "for a special event."

Update: Here is the VIDEO of her speech.
